Developments

New pre-installed folders in the Personal Library - 21 Jan 2017

JRCPTB have pre-installed a number of mandatory folders. This is to support you with uploading files and documents relevant to your training.  The folders will become visible to you once you have logged into your account. Existing folders can be dragged and dropped into these new folders and you can also create sub folders. This will also help external reviewers to navigate and locate files in the personal library when you are being assessed.

New folders:

  • ARCP
  • Audit & Quality improvement projects
  • Exams, Certificate & Courses
  • Logbook
  • PYA documents & PYA targets (evidence of achievement)
  • Research, Presentations & Publications

Combined Infection training (CIT) - August 2015

The new combined infection training (CIT) programme goes live on 5 August. CIT has been a joint development between the Joint Royal College of Physicians Training Board (JRCPTB) and the Royal College of Pathologists to more closely align training in the infection disciplines of infectious diseases (ID), tropical medicine (TM), medical microbiology (MM) and medical virology (MV).

New programme codes, assessment forms, the CIT curriculum and revised curricula for each of the infection specialties have been added to the ePortfolio (please see below). Trainees who are appointed to, or transfer to, the CIT programme will be able to use the JRCPTB ePortfolio to record their progress in training, whether they are in single specialty or dual training programmes in ID, TM, MM or MV.

Further information on CIT and guidance on transferring to the new curriculum has been published on the infectious diseases/tropical medicine page.
