Additional Compulsory Training Arrangements

In addition to the usual competencies acquired through respiratory training, the JRCPTB has specified additional compulsory training requirements for certain areas (pulmonary hypertension, CF, transplant, occupational lung disease).

  • Occupational lung disease clinics (see how to arrange)
  • Lung Transplantation attachment (see how to arrange)
  • Pulmonary hypertension (see how to arrange)
  • Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy clinics – evidence of some experience. Arrange locally in appropriate posts.
  • Cystic Fibrosis attachment (see how to arrange)
  • Smoking cessation clinic experience (an online or BTS course is also beneficial, or formal level 1 training available at The Whittington)
  • Pulmonary rehabilitation experience (arrange with your Respiratory Physio or community team (easy at the Whittington and Homerton). Why not give a patient education session and get it signed off as a Teaching Observation?)
  • Integrated Respiratory Medicine experience (strict criteria not yet agreed: Dr Bhowmik suggests at least 3 MDTs and a home visit accompanying a specialist nurse with CbD afterwards. Easy to arrange at Whittington and Homerton)
  • HIV clinic experience (available at UCLH and Royal Free).
  • Respiratory allergy and immunology (available at Homerton).
  • Thoracic surgical list (arrange locally through the surgeon at your Lung Cancer MDT)
  • Safe sedation course (see courses).
