The medical regulator in the UK, the General Medical Council, requires curricula and assessments for postgraduate training to be blueprinted to its regulatory statement, Good Medical Practice. A similar document, Tomorrow's Doctors (2009), covers undergraduate education and training. Good Medical Practice, originally designed to regulate medical practice, is not optimally worded as an educational document. The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada's physician competency framework known as CanMEDS is designed with education more centrally in mind.
