Medical revalidation is the system in the UK by which doctors have to periodically re-license so that they can remain on the medical register maintained by the General Medical Council (GMC) and update their licence to practise. The process of revalidation involves doctors demonstrating to the GMC that they are up to date, fit to practise medicine and complying with all relevant professional standards.

A system of revalidating professional registration also applies to nurses and midwives. Under the system all nurses and midwives on the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) register are required to revalidate every three years at the point of their registration renewal.
