Online Patient Survey Form - now live on e-Portfolio
We are pleased to announce that trainee's will now be able to send a Patient Survey Form to those who request to complete it virtually via the external ticketing process.
Patients will receive an email with a 10-digit code and once the form has been completed, the feedback will be collated and saved anonymously on the e-Portfolio.
Feedback received via paper copies of the forms will need to be collated by the Educational Supervisor.
A minimum of 20 completed forms are required for a valid patient survey and this may be a combination of electronic and paper forms. If all 20 responses are received electronically, then the Educational Supervisor must release the Online Patient Survey Summary Form. If a combination of responses are received both electronically and paper, the Educational Supervisor must release the Online Patient Survey Summary Form and complete the Patient Survey ES Summary Form for paper responses.

General (Internal) Medicine Educational Supervisor's Report - November 2018
The GIM Specialty Advisory Committee (SAC) has produced a new GIM Educational Supervisor’s Report that focuses on the requirements for training in GIM and which should be quick and easy to complete.
All dual specialty trainees are required to provide two Educational Supervisor’s Reports to inform their ARCPs and PYAs: one for their main specialty and one for GIM. Until now the same form has been used to complete both reports, and this was not best suited for giving an account of progress with training in GIM.
This new Educational Supervisor’s Report should now be completed for all trainees who are dual training in GIM.
Please note that this does not apply retrospectively and GIM Educational Supervisor’s Reports in the old format submitted before 9 November 2018 will remain valid.

The system will now also check if the same version of the curriculum already exists on the trainees account and will not allow duplicate curriculum to be downloaded the trainees account.
