The Deanery Quality Management Committee
[DQMC] is responsible for the quality management [QM]of
postgraduate medical and dental education within the Oxford
In response to the GMC expectation for
deaneries to quality manage medical training, the Oxford Deanery
has developed a quality management process based on
the GMC model with data collection framed around the GMC
domains and standards as set out in The Trainee
Doctor. The process builds on the Better Regular
Taskforce's key principles and adheres to the
principles of risk-based regulation, externality, the triangulation
of data and openness and transparency.
Building on the clinical excellence,
innovation and research in the Oxford region, the Deanery ensures
delivery of the highest quality postgraduate training for doctors
and dentists, meeting the evolving needs of the health service.
The remit of the Deanery Quality Management
Committee is to oversee all Deanery QM processes ensuring that they
meet GMC standards and mandatory requirements. The aim is to ensure
a high quality delivery of education and training by gathering
information on the quality of training from a range of source
across the Deanery, which can be measured against GMC standards and
used to bring about continual improvements in education and
training as well as new developments.
Information gathering is an ongoing process,
occurring through the year, and carried out by a number of
different people. The Quality Management process triangulates data
from a range of sources including visits [Specialty, and
Postgraduate Dean], annual trust reports, the GMC National Training
Surveys [Trainer & Trainee], local school surveys, exit
interviews, annual school reports, exam outcomes and reports
received from clinical and lay external representatives.
