Pilot Information

What is a pilot?

The aim of a pilot is to collect performance data and individual feedback about questions and OSCE stations, on a wide range of doctors of all grades working in a particular specialty. We use this data as the basis for reports on poorly performing doctors who are referred for a Test of Competence (TOC) by the GMC. The data is used to form a reference group of volunteer doctors working in the UK to which the TOC doctor is compared. You will form part of that group.

Can I become involved?

Stethoscope

Help pilot new material as a volunteer doctor or assessor. This is a unique way to gain insight into what is going on in the profession with regards to assessment and performance and great exam practice for those with postgraduate exams looming. The honorarium is £350.00 plus lunch and travel (standard class) expenses. Volunteers must be between FY2-Consultant level, and have worked within the specialty for at least four months within the last year. Assessors must be Consultants with relevant OSCE experience and preferably previous pilot candidates.
