In order to practice medicine in the UK, you will first need to register with the General Medical Council (GMC) to obtain a license to practice. By having a license to practice, you will be able to assess patients, diagnose and prescribe medication.
All medical professionals applying for full or provisional registration with the GMC will need to have their primary medical qualification (PMQ) and post graduate qualification (PGQ) independently verified through the Electronic Portfolio of International Credentials (EPIC) verification.
If you are a doctor entering the NHS from outside of the UK, you will be required to complete an English proficiency test to support your GMC application. The purpose of these exams is so that you can demonstrate your ability to understand and communicate English effectively.
The Occupational English Test (OET) is an English proficiency test for health professionals who are looking to register with several different health boards. The OET is an accredited test that can be used in support of your registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) and Nursing Medical Council (NMC) here in the UK.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) assessment looks at all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking.
