To ensure the effectiveness of the ARCP process it is essential that the following documentation is available on ISCP.  It is a trainee’s responsibility to ensure that the documentary evidence is uploaded to the portfolio by the published submission date (normally two weeks before the Panel ARCP date).  Any omission or problems with any of your evidence must be notified in writing to your Training Programme Director two weeks before the ARCP date. 


Please refer to ISCP for guidance on the new curriculum requirements for Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery (August 2021). Failure to complete the curriculum requirements or submit the required documentation could result in an unsatisfactory outcome. Trainees should note that any assessments completed after the 2 week prior submission date may not be considered by the panel.
