GMC registration

The General Medical Council (GMC) are a public body that maintains the official register of medical practitioners within the UK.
  • All doctors must be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) to practise in the UK. There are various types of GMC registration depending on the job role that you’re pursuing, and different pathways for applying.
  • The GMC requires additional proof for your application, such as evidence of your English proficiency and details of your internship. You must also get your qualifications independently verified before the GMC approves your registration application.
  • If you have an EEA or Swiss primary and/or specialist medical qualification classed as a “relevant European qualification”, you may be able to apply for GMC full and/or specialist registration using those qualifications. You can find out if your qualification is a relevant European qualification by selecting the country where you qualified here.
