IMPORTANT - MEDICAL STUDENTS
As Medical Students, you have an added layer of professional expectation. We strongly recommend that you read the GMC (General Medical Council) publication "ACHIEVING GOOD MEDICAL PRACTICE" and refer to this document regularly throughout your time on the course, so you are familiar with the expectations the GMC have of all UK Medical Students. The Faculty has designed the course, and professional expectations of you as a Medical student, based on these guidelines.
