In 2008 COPDEND agreed a framework for Deaneries to use for quality development. Since then PMETB has now been replaced by GMC for the regulation of quality of Postgraduate Medical Education. They have now accepted new standards, “The Trainee Doctor” .
A working group was set up to look at development of the previous COPDEND postgraduate dental quality development framework. This includes the Chair of Joint Committee for Postgraduate Training in Dentistry (JCPTD). A General Dental Council (GDC) observer was included in the working group meetings.
