With such a competitive application process, medical school essays can seem like a frightening place to admit that you still have much to learn, and many applicants worry this will make it seem like they have deficiencies. This is not so. Expressing an understanding of what you need to acquire to achieve your goals demonstrates valuable insight. Finally, include information in your medical school essay that helps the admissions officers understand how your vision, combined with an education from their program, will ensure that you will be able to fulfill your goals and provide excellent care for your patients.
In the 2000s, the GMC implemented wide-ranging reforms of its organisation and procedures. In part, such moves followed the Shipman killings . They followed a direction set by the UK government in its white paper, Trust, Assurance and Safety.  In 2001 freemasonry was added to the register of interests of council members that the GMC published.  One of the key changes was to reduce the size of the Council itself, and changing its composition to an equal number of medical and lay members, rather than the majority being doctors.  Legislation passed in December 2002 allowed changes in the composition of the Council from the following year, with the number of members reducing from 104 to 35, increasing the proportion of lay members.
