Workplace-based assessments (WPBAs) are used to evidence your progression through the specialty training programme and, combined with the MRCOG, form the programme of assessment. The assessments aim to link teaching, learning, assessment and reflection in a structured way.
WPBAs are not necessarily used to demonstrate that you are completely competent in a procedure, but rather to identify strengths and weaknesses. This helps your Educational Supervisor give you the necessary support. To gain an accurate picture of your abilities, several WPBAs will be evaluated together at your routine appraisals.
You should take assessments throughout the training year, they will provide you with valuable feedback. You should complete all assessment forms via your ePortfolio.
