Appointment of Registration Assessment Panellists

26 June 2019

Appointment of Registration Assessment Panellists

As a dentist or dental care professional, your knowledge and expertise could help us maintain standards by ensuring those seeking to practise in the UK have the appropriate qualifications, knowledge and skills for registration.

The General Dental Council (GDC) is looking to hire assessors for its Registration Assessment Panelists. The Panellists assess applications for registration from dentists qualified in the European Economic Area (EEA) where their qualification is not automatically recognised in the UK, and from those EEA nationals qualified outside of the EEA. They also consider applications from dental care professionals qualified outside of the UK.

The panels are made up of a combination of dentists and dental care professionals. The panellists’ role is to provide advice and recommendations to the GDC Registrar as to whether an applicant’s name should be added to the GDC’s registers based on an assessment of qualifications, knowledge and experience.

As a panel member, you would commit to participate in a minimum of three panel meetings and one training day a year. Appointments will be for five years with an opportunity to extend for a further term.

Further information on applying for this role, please visit the GDC website.
