Regulation of Training

Public Health Training is regulated by two main bodies the General Medical Council (GMC) and the UK Public Health Register (UKPHR). The Faculty of Public Health (FPH) works with these organisations to set standards and maintain quality within the training programme.

The GMC sets the educational standards for all UK doctors through undergraduate and postgraduate education and training. It also awards the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).

The UKPHR is an independent, dedicated regulator for public health professionals in the United Kingdom, providing professional regulation to public health specialists and public health practitioners from a variety of backgrounds, all of whom have a common core of knowledge, and skills.
