Deal allows GPs to sit exams on Island

Fri, 16 Oct 2020

GPs will be able to progress their studies without leaving the Isle of Man under a new agreement that lets them sit exams on Island.

Since 2015, all GP training has been provided on Island apart from two exams which must be sat in the UK - but border restrictions currently mean doctors must self-isolate for 14 days after each trip.

Under the new arrangement GPs will be able to sit the initial exam at University College Isle of Man’s on-line test centre in Douglas – avoiding the need to isolate.

The deal between the Manx Government and the North West Medical Deanery, who support the training programme, was agreed this week.
