deanery

The regional unit of postgraduate education delivery in the UK, which is supervised by a postgraduate dean and GP Director. Deaneries serve multiple NHS Trusts, are responsible for postgraduate education and training of doctors and dentists to standards set by the General Medical Council (GMC) and the General Dental Council (GDC), and are advised by Specialty Training Committees (STCs) with input from consultant doctors and surgeons. Deaneries control, monitor and fund the number of current training posts via the National Training Number (NTN) system. They contract with healthcare providers (e.g., acute hospital trusts) to ensure that Trusts, GP Training Practices and Health Authorities provide a suitable learning environment to meet the expectations of Specialist and Generalist Medical and Dental training.
