I am a doctor in training – what do I need to do about revalidation?

As a doctor in training your postgraduate dean will be your RO (except in Scotland, where your RO will be the medical director for NHS Education for Scotland). You will not need to collate supporting information over and above that required for your Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) or Record of In-Training Assessment (RITA).

The timing of your first revalidation will depend either on your date of full registration or your expected Certificate of Completion in Training (CCT) date. The GMC says:

  • If a trainee’s expected CCT date is between 3 December 2012 and 31 March 2013, their first revalidation will be between 1 April 2014 and 31 March 2016.
  • If a trainee’s expected CCT date is between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2018, their first revalidation will be at their point of eligibility for CCT.
  • If a trainee’s expected CCT date is after 31 December 2018, their first revalidation will be between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2018. (Responsible officers can ask the GMC to change the revalidation date at any stage to align with any change in expected CCT date.)
