Vice-chancellor to review post-grad medical training in the UK

The University of Nottingham’s Vice Chancellor Professor David Greenaway will head an independent review of postgraduate medical training in the UK. The review, entitled ‘Independent Review of the Shape of Medical Training’, will explore how medical training should be adapted in the light of changing societal factors and developments in medical technology.

Professor Greenaway, Vice-Chancellor of the University since 2008 and a Professor of Economics, already has an impressive repertoire of roles in the public sphere, including chairmanship of the Armed Forces Pay Review Body and membership of the Senior Salaries Review Body.

Niall Dickson, Chief Executive of the General Medical Council, which is a joint sponsor of the Review, said:  ‘We are delighted that Professor Greenaway has agreed to chair this review – he brings experience, objectivity and rigour to this new and important role.’ The Review is expected to report its findings by June 2013.
