I received a caution for a minor incident two years ago. Will this prevent me from training to be a doctor?



All students are required to undergo an enhanced DBS check prior to commencing their first clinical attachment. Certain criminal offences may preclude a doctor from registering with the GMC (General Medical Council). Any person with a record of one of these offences would not be considered "fit to practice" and would not be permitted patient contact. This would mean they would be unable to complete the MBChB programme.In most circumstances minor offences will not be a bar to training and practicing as a doctor. However, applicants will be expected to declare any convictions, cautions, warnings or fixed penalty notices when asked, and may be subject to further requirements to confirm their fitness to practice.
