If you find postgraduate education “byzantine in its complexity, beset by obscure acronyms, a maze through which it is impossible to navigate” then A guide to postgraduate medical education, which charts the origins of PGME, should prove useful. Defines the roles of those working within it, and provides a useful summary of recent developments in audit, quality assurance, and reaccreditation. Chapters on the development of the summative assessment process, the MRCGP exam, and developments in recertification for general practitioner, make this book essential reading for all general practitioners.
