Flexible portfolio training
With the Royal College of Physicians, we are piloting flexible portfolio training posts for doctors training in general medicine.
These flexible portfolio training posts, which start in 2019, will give trainees protected time to pursue alternative professional development, alongside their usual training.
Within the pilot, trainees will:
- get one protected day a week, or equivalent to concentrate on your complementary pathway (medical education, research, quality improvement or clinical informatics)
- have opportunities for focused professional and personal development
- be able to develop and strengthen key competencies and new skills in a different environment
- still achieve CCT in the usual timeframe (subject to satisfactory training progression).
These exciting new posts are only available in certain regions in England:
- West Midlands
- East Midlands
- East of England
- South West England
- North West England
- North East
- Yorkshire and the Humber
