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!
