Clinical oncology curriculum

Clinical oncology curriculum 

Training curricula for all specialties and subspecialties are being rewritten in line with the GMC’s 'Excellence by Design' standards for postgraduate curricula. These standards aim to improve the flexibility of training and move away from the 'tick box' approach of previous curricula. They also hope to produce curricula that will better support patient, professional and service need, as set out in the Shape of Training Report, by focussing on generic professional capabilities. These broader skills are required by doctors across all medical specialties to produce safe and effective patient care.

A new curriculum for clinical oncology that meets these standards has been conditionally approved by the GMC (final approval is pending).  The new curriculum has been developed through close working with colleagues in medical oncology and includes a common first year of training, known as the oncology common stem (OCS).  All trainees, except those due to CCT before September 2022, are required to transfer to the new curricula by August 2021.
