The article analyzes the factors that influence the control of medical education in Great Britain. Medical graduates must be accepted for training in a specialty in an uncontrolled way. In the British system, there are advantages and disadvantages in which it is hard to define the point at which doctor becomes a trainee. Good training must be available to those who qualifies in medicine without imposing rigid control.
