General Medical Council surveys

People doing surveys

What are the GMC national training surveys?

Each year the General Medical Council (GMC) surveys all doctors in training to find out their views on their training experience.

This feedback helps us to make sure that doctors in training receive training of a high quality in a safe and effective clinical environment.

The GMC also surveys all trainers in primary and secondary care (GP practices and clinics and hospital environments) in order to understand their experience of being a trainer and to help ensure that they are well supported in their roles.

When does the survey take place?

Trainees and trainers have a six week period to complete the survey between March and May each year (exact dates vary). The survey results are then reported in the summer of that year.
