JRCPTB announces its recommendations for specialty trainee assessment and review

In 2012, the JRCPTB piloted revisions to the WPBA system to test their acceptability and feasibility. As a result of the pilot, the JRCPTB has developed recommendations for specialty trainee assessment and review to be implemented in August 2014 for all trainees in core medical training and specialty training in the UK.

The lessons learnt from the pilot – together with feedback from trainee and trainer surveys, specialist advisory committees (SACs) and heads of schools of medicine have contributed to the recommendations in the report.

JRCPTB will provide guidance on the new assessment and review requirements plus revised ARCP decision aids for trainees, supervisors, training programme directors and LETBs/deaneries before August 2014.

Further information on WPBAs can be found on the JRCPTB website. If you have any queries regarding the report please contact wpbaqueries@jrcptb.org.uk.
