Dear Student

The GDC would like to hear your views

The General Dental Council (GDC), the organisation that you need to register with once you start work, would like to hear what you think about our ‘Student Fitness to Practise’guidance.

We want to learn about:

  • how and when you are taught about the professional behaviour expected of you during training and what to do if there is a problem?
  • what you understand about the issues – and what information would be helpful in the future?
  • the best ways of communicating with you to get your views

We are thinking about creating some separate guidance aimed at students – tell us what you think? Once we have developed our updated guidance we would be interested to know if you would be happy to be contacted again to have a look at it and see if it works for students.

Here is a short questionnaire. The questionnaire is confidential and the information will be used to improve our current guidance ‘Student Fitness to Practise’. We are keen to hear from as many of you as possible. The deadline for replying is Friday 22nd May 2015.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Sarah Crossfield at the GDC Email

Thank you for your interest.
