Purpose[ edit ] All the GMC's functions derive from a statutory requirement for the establishment and maintenance of a register, which is the definitive list of doctors as provisionally or fully "registered medical practitioners", within the public sector in Britain.

Provisional registration is granted to those who have completed medical school and enter their first year F1 of medical training; this may be converted into full registration upon satisfactory completion of the first year of postgraduate training.
