To be noted by Applicants:

GMC information for doctors about pre-registration verification of qualifications from 11 June 2018.

Applicants for provisional or full registration with a licence to practise will need to have their primary medical qualification independently verified before GMC grant their registration, if they:

  • qualified at a medical school outside of the UK, EEA or Switzerland OR
  • are a national of a country outside the UK, EEA or Switzerland who graduated from a medical school outside the UK and do not already hold provisional registration with a licence to practise. Verification will be carried out by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), through their online system - known as the Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPIC) service. ECFMG will verify the qualification by checking this directly with the doctor's medical school.
