RCGP - GP Curriculum Documents

Welcome to the GP Curriculum Documents section.  From here you can access the GP Curriculum statements themselves as well as other useful documents produced by the RCGP to support the GP Curriculum.

Why do we need a Trainee ePortfolio?

The assessments recorded in the Trainee ePortfolio will be drawn from performance and evaluation taking place in the real situations in which doctors work. It also allows competence in areas such as team-working to be appraised in a manner which cannot be done by the AKT and CSA.

 

 

The Trainee ePortfolio belongs to the GPStR but key parts of it are accessible to the trainer, educational supervisor and deanery administrators through a permissions system. All personal records will be hidden to all except the GPStR until they decide to share them. The Trainee ePortfolio includes places to record tutorials, formal educational sessions and a skills log. It has a diary and a mailbox. It will also contain links to learning resources that are being developed by the RCGP and has a personal area where individuals can save files, documents, certificates of learning and other digital materials.

 

 

AKT and CSA results will be made available through the Trainee ePortfolio.  The Trainee ePortfolio will also carry the evidence that is considered at interim and final reviews. Trainees who pass WPBA at final review and also have a pass in AKT and CSA will be elligible to apply for a Certificate of Completion of Training (VVT), inclusion in the General Medical Council’s GP Register and membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners.  The Certification Unit of the RCGP will receive the indication from the GPStR that they are ready for certification.

 

Many tools will be completed on-line without the contributor having to enter the Trainee ePortfolio. Writing to many parts of the Trainee ePortfolio will be limited to the trainer or educational supervisor. The personal section of the Trainee ePortfolio will be hidden to all except the GP trainee.

 

 

Users who would like to see a paper copy of the six assessment forms used for WPBA, can download and print copies of the tools. Please note that this document is slow to download.

What is Trainee ePortfolio?

Above all else the Trainee ePortfolio is where the GPStR records their learning in all its forms and settings. Its prime function is to be an educational tool that will record and facilitate the management of the journey of clinical and personal development through learning. 

 

It is the system used to record the evidence collected through the application of the WPBA tools. It might be described as the “glue” which holds the curriculum learning and assessment together. 

 

 

All the facilities for recording applications of the WPBA tools are tagged to the competence areas so that an overall picture of competence is easily accessed. The trainer or educational supervisor will also have the opportunity to file items under a content heading.

 

 

The Trainee ePortfolio should also be used to record and validate naturally occurring evidence against the competence framework. This is evidence which occurs in the course of practice and which illustrates the GPStR’s competence. 

 

For example, the GPStR may do an evidence review on a specific topic and present it to a practice meeting. This might be taken as evidence of data gathering and interpretation, or communication skills. Evidence that a GPStR is late for surgeries on a regular basis might be discussed with the GPStR and recorded under teamwork. Naturally occurring evidence needs to be validated by the GP trainer.
