This trainee has been working the whole time equivalent of 70% throughout the ST3 training year in a lecturer post. They are due their ARCP in January 2020, one calendar year from their last ARCP which was an outcome 1. Their end of year ARCP from ST3 to 4 is due in June 2020. This information relates to the January 2020 ARCP.
The trainee has completed their PhD in this calendar year and successfully applied for and secured a lecturer post.
They do not have their MRCOG Part 2.
Evidence provided to the ARCP panel
- 2 sets of TO1 feedback have been completed within the calendar year. One of these was part of the pilot for self-assessment within the TO1.
- The trainee has completed both ultrasound modules and undertaken the WBAs listed below. The WBAs were spread throughout the training year aside from NOTSS which has not been undertaken. The ES report notes that this is an omission as they were unaware of the requirement to complete a NOTSS as part of the new curriculum changes and the move to the new ePortfolio in October 2019.
|Mini-CEX||8 split between O&G|
|CbD||8 but 6 out of 8 are obstetric|
|Formative OSATS||10 including diagnostic laparoscopy, sterilisation hysteroscopy, caesarean section, forceps delivery and vulval biopsy|
|Competent summative OSATS||1 manual remove of a placenta (she now has 3 competent signed off, 2 summative OSATs for CS and 1 for forceps).|
- After checking the linked evidence on the non-clinical CiPs, the ES has agreed with the trainee’s self-assessment that they are meeting the standards for the year of training in all these CiPs. The ES documents they have undertaken the checks. The panel reviews the evidence for some of the generic CIPs.
- The evidence for CiP 6 includes outstanding TO1 forms specifically commenting on the support they have given to more junior colleagues and midwifery staff.
- The trainee has attended a teaching session on psychological first aid and one of their reflections is regarding their support of a FY2 doctor who had been undermined by a more senior colleague and how they both supported and signposted them to further help to resolve the situation.
- Evidence for CiP 7 was very strong given their successful PhD, the publication of 1 peer-reviewed paper and their contribution to the weekly journal club.
- There is evidence from the old ePortfolio for all other generic CiPs aside from CiP 13 (Non-discrimination and inclusion) where there is sign off with the evidence being one piece of reflective practice.
- Clinical CiPs 9 and 10 have already been signed off at level 3 by the trainee and countersigned by the ES.
- Progress is evidenced by the sign off of appropriate/good progress in the core logbook particularly at an intermediate level in modules 10, 11 and 16 and outstanding TO1s referring to the trainee's clinical competence which is assessed by many as beyond ST3 in their management of obstetric emergencies.
- The ES has written supportive but brief comments and has made the global judgement that this trainee has met expectations for progress in training recognising that this is not the end of ST3.
