Appraisal & Revalidation


The Faculty provide an appraisal process that is compliant with the requirements of the GMC's Good medical practice framework for appraisal and revalidation.

Before applying for a FSEM appraisal you should check with your Responsible Officer (RO) whether a Faculty appraisal would be accepted for the purpose of revalidation. This decision lies entirely with your RO and you must comply with their decision.  

Doctors who have a Faculty appraisal that do not have a prescribed connection may apply to the Faculty for the service of the Faculty's Suitable Person (SP). 

For further information please contact the Faculty adminstrator by email: or call 0131 527 1612.
