Notes on Dual Anaesthesia-ICM ARCP requirements
(Advanced ICM/joint CCT trainees use ST5-7 Anaesthesia page)

  • Dual Anaesthesia-ICM ARCPs are held simultaneously with a single panel
  • Information from both e-portfolios will be available to the whole panel
  • These notes are designed to minimise duplication for trainees
  • Use these notes in combination with separate Anaesthesia & ICM ARCP requirements
  • ICM evidence and progression will be assessed pro rata for time spent in ICM modules within the year
  • FICM Portfolio
  • Ensure you add all posts (including Anaesthesia) every year to show complete programme (even if not counting towards FICM CCT.  This is essential to create an ARCP Form
  • Competencies can be completed at any time/during any post
  • Ensure ESSR/MSF is shown on FICM eportfolio for ARCP
  • 2 Case summaries yer year (total 10) and Complete top 30 When stage complete (which may not coincide with ARCP) contact TPD/RA to get sign off and open next stage on eportfolio
  • Ideally your Educational Supervisor has access to both eportfolios to minimize duplication

Educational Supervisor’s Structured Report

Complete Anaesthesia e-portfolio ESSR if any of this year is counting towards Anaesthesia CCT
Complete ICM e-portfolio Educational Supervisors report

Trainees will therefore need to complete ESSR on both portfolios - you can upload a copy to other portfolio if required

Anaesthesia Unit of Training sign offs


Completed Anaesthesia Units of Training should be signed off on the Anaesthesia e-portfolio, but evidence (eg WPBAs) can come from either portfolio

Workplace based assessments

WPBA can be done on either portfolio - you can upload a copy and cross reference on the other portfolio.


Multi-Source Feedback

At least one MSF per year - ensure copy on both portfolios

If majority of year in Anaesthesia, use Anaesthesia e-portfolio
