2010 WPBA schedule

Please note: the GMC approved a new curriculum for implementation in August 2015: Curriculum from August 2015. A new assessment schedule has been created: The 2015 RCEM WPBA schedule, which can be found on the tab next to this one. The GMC has clarified how migration of trainees to the latest curriculum is to be effected. They state that trainees in their final year of training are not usually expected to transfer and that there is some flexibility for deaneries/LETBs and Colleges in setting the CCT date and if training in the final year is extended by six months or less then they would not usually be required to transfer. All other trainees are expected to move within two years.   Guidance on migrating to the current curriculum can be found here: Guidance on migrating to the current curriculum - July 2015.
