General Medical Council
What is the GMC?
The purpose of the General Medical Council (GMC) is to protect, promote and maintain the health and safety of the public by ensuring proper standards in the practice of medicine.
How is ACME involved?
The Academic Centre for Medical Education (ACME) is contracted to set up and write the reports for the Tests of Competence for the Fitness to Practice (FtP) procedures, using specific tests that have been designed to reflect the practice of the doctor being investigated. Since 2004, we have been reviewing and developing test items to ensure they are up-to-date, fair, valid and reliable. An experienced team within ACME run the GMC project. A cross specialty team of clinicians, educational consultants and College representatives helps write and standard set new items, blueprinted against “Good Medical Practice”. These new items are validated by volunteer doctors and data has been collected on the performance of doctors of a wide range of grades and specialties practising in the UK.
