Working with doctors, working for patients

PLAB Station Management Group members

The General Medical Council helps to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. We support them in achieving (and exceeding) those standards, and take action when they are not met.

The PLAB test is the main route by which international medical graduates demonstrate they have the necessary skills and knowledge to practise medicine in the UK.

PLAB Station Management Group members will be part of a team to manage the stations, as part of the Part 2 18-station objective structured clinical examination (OSCE). This will include developing new stations, attending station writing days, advising on station management procedures, and contributing to discussions on policy issues.

This role requires a commitment of at least six non-consecutive weekdays a year to attend group meetings which will usually be held in Manchester.

Applicants should be practising clinicians of any grade above ST2 with an interest in medical education and assessment, and be fully registered with a licence to practise.  Medical educators, other professionals and those who have recently demitted practice will be considered where they can demonstrate considerable experience of OSCE development. 

As part of our commitment to diversity, we seek members from a wide range of backgrounds and actively encourage applications from BME doctors, female doctors and doctors with a disability.
