List of trainees:
We have 7 substantive training posts in Northern Ireland. They are linked to the Belfast Trust and rotate between the Royal Victoria Hospital & Belfast City Hospital. The Dermatology speciality training is 4 years. Trainees are encouraged to develop a sub-speciality interest. Out of programme experience can be granted to permit the trainee to complete a higher research dergree to MD or PhD level.
We follow the UK training scheme. On completion of training the trainee is awarded CCT Dermatology and their name is placed on the General Medical Council’s Specialist Register.
The JRCPTB is a Federation of Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK body responsible for delivering the three Colleges' role in setting and maintaining standards for physician specialist training in the UK.
This involves, monitoring individual trainees' progress through specialist training, providing expertise and advice as required for trainees and their supervisors, and to make recommendations for the award of Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) and Certificate confirming Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR) via the combined programme pathway. Assessment of successful acquisition of the competencies stipulated in curricula for Core Medical Training and Specialty Training, is based upon assessment systems carefully mapped onto each curriculum. These systems will measure the progress of trainees using a framework (or blueprint) of workplace-based assessments (WPBA) and knowledge based assessments (KBA) including the MRCP(UK) examination. Trainee progress, measured by assessment and other evidence, will be recorded using the Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) system described in the Gold Guide. ‘ARCP Decision Aids' have been written for CMT and each specialty to define the requirements for successful progression at ARCP. Each assessment system has been designed around the principles established by the Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board (now merged with the General Medical Council), and mapped to the domains of Good Medical Practice.
