Creating and Maintaining Eportfolio

All specialty doctors in AIM and GIM must enroll with JRCPTB and maintain an Eportfolio.  It is important to note that registration with JRCPTB JRCPTB must be carried out on entry into specialty training even if previously registered as a Internal Medicine Doctor. Only once fully registered with JRCPTB and in post, an e-portfolio account will be created in your name.

Your e-portfolio will contain both AIM and G(I)M curricula.

  • Doctors in training should ensure personal details are kept up to date (with a photo). Doctors in training must ensure that at the commencement of each post on the rotation they contact the Education Centre within their hospital and your PSO at HEE NE to update their supervisor and post details on the e-portfolio system.
  • During the course of each year spent at different hospitals on the training programme it is the Doctors in training responsibility to ensure that their e-portfolio is kept up to date. In particular:
    • At the start of each post Doctors in training should complete educational agreements in the “profile” section. Doctors in training must also establish a Personal Development Plan and complete an Induction appraisal, details of which can be completed in the “appraisal” section of e-portfolio.
    • During the post Doctors in training must maintain their portfolio completing necessary work place based assessments (WPBAs) (see Preparing for ARCP). These WPBAs should be linked to relevant elements of the curricula. It is important to remember that WPBAs need to address both AIM and G(I)M curriculum competencies. A mid-post appraisal is recommended and can be completed on the e-portfolio. It is worthwhile completing WPBAs throughout the year to avoid stress in the few weeks before ARCPs.
    • Once sufficient evidence has been collected and linked to a curriculum competency your educational supervisor must sign that particular competency off by entering it within the “curriculum” section as supervisor and confirming it. This is important as it will be expected at ARCP that a certain percentage of competencies are complete (see AIM/GIM section of JRCPTB website) 
    • Relevant certificates should be uploaded onto Eportfolio and a record of attendance at mandatory courses and teaching should be logged within your personal library (and a reflection should also be added).
    • At the end of a post Doctors in training should complete an 'end of post appraisal' with their supervisor.

Further information on completing Eportfolio can be found in the “help” section on Eportfolio
