As a specialty trainee you will be required to participate in the annual assessment (ARCP) process as outlined in the Gold Guide.
Dates for 2021
The annual assessments for Cardiology are held twice a year usually in June and November/December. The next round of ARCPs will be held in June 2021 and trainees who are having their ARCP will be contacted by their Specialty Programme Co-ordinator, Gillian Conway
Trainees having an ARCP, will need to ensure that all evidence according to their ST level and as per the ARCP Decision Aid below is uploaded on e-portfolio. Evidence must also include an up to date Educational Supervisor Report to cover from your last ARCP up to the present. Please also refer to your previous ARCP panel letter which sets out the requirements and should be uploaded on e-portfolio.
