PYA process for Hepatology 2017/18

PYA process for Hepatology 2017/18 - information for trainees, TPDs and external assessors.

The JRCPTB are monitoring Gastroenterology trainees who will be seeking Hepatology subspecialty accreditation, based on national Hepatology ATP recruitment and an annually updated academic trainee list.

An online PYA form is established on Eportfolio which allows achievement to date towards accreditation with remaining targets/training time. The form will be completed around the time of the Gastroenterology PYA by the Hepatology subspecialty TPD who will have eportfolio access (below). The subspecialty TPD will liaise with trainee, TPD and Gastroenterology PYA assessor as necessary prior to PYA completion (via email principally).

At the Gastroenterology final ARCP, the trainee's local TPD will need to include Hepatology as a subspecialty on the outcome 6 form and will  then review the Hepatology PYA targets (as per the PYA form), stating whether these have been met. The educational supervisor for the ATP should have already ratified the decision aid for that year.
