    I would also like to know the answer to this question. I have heard a similar rumour that it is changing to 5 years. I have not seen anything on the Royal College website or other announcements via my google searching.

    ANYbody know???

    According to the doctors i know who are training to be GPs it has increased to 5 years post foundation years. It's so that GPs get more hospital experience and therefore hopefully will be better at diagnosis in primary care :)

    I have just completed my MBBS, thinking to take a route of becoming a GP or a Family Practitioner. I was wondering if it is worth doing a postgraduate diploma now or wait a bit after gaining some experience? There some good courses on the market, some are almost entirely online, for example Postgraduate diplomas from Rila Institute of Health Sciences and Plymouth University, London (gpcourses.co) They offer courses from Cardiology, Diabetes, Dermatology to even Minor Surgery. Any one has any suggestions?
