ARCP Covid updates and GIM hours

The reduced ARCP competencies from last year are to be continued for the 2021 ARCP round – we are still awaiting the final list to be published (keep an eye out here), but for respiratory it is likely to be similar to 2020, i.e. approx. 50% reduction in number of assessments.

PYAs remain suspended. When you get to around 12 months from CCT date, contact Dr Bhowmik to arrange a portfolio review.

Sub-speciality requirements for training in CF, pulmonary hypertension and lung transplant also remain suspended and these requirements are to be temporarily replaced by doing online courses. A TPD-approved list of courses is here.

We are working on an updated ARCP checklist which will hopefully be available soon!

For those struggling with reaching 100 GIM teaching hours following Covid-interruptions, here are some suggestions for upcoming online CPD hours:

RSM Managing acute medical presentations on the frontline: A guide for trainees – Series 3

Four separate episodes (8th April, 5th May, 2nd June, 1st July) – free for trainees, each providing 2 CPD credits

RCP London Acute Medicine Series & Speciality Series

Evening virtual credited for 2 CPD points each that cover a number of general medical/speciality topics. Free for members, £15 for guests. See here.
