COGPED (Committee of General Practice Education Directors) offers a forum for Postgraduate GP Directors to meet and share good practice.

Its aim is to encourage and maintain a consistent approach to GP training across the United Kingdom. It is a focal point for communication between the Postgraduate GP Directors and other stakeholders such as Royal College of General Practitioners, BMA, GPC, NCAS, GMC and various sections of Department of Health.

COGPED has a record of achievement and leading partnership with other stakeholders in meeting its objectives e.g. Centralisation of Selection to GP Training, Higher Professional Education for Newly Qualified GPs, Out of Hours Training arrangement for GP Registrars and a number of other initiatives related to medical education standards and workforce issues.
