Internal Medicine Training e-learning programme – supervisor report guidance

Created jointly by Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) and the Joint Royal College of Physicians Training Board (JRCPTB), the programme aims to set out how to write a meaningful and effective Educational Supervisor Report (ESR) for Internal Medicine training. The information is also helpful for supervisors of foundation doctors.

This module sets out how to prepare to write an ESR, considered by the Annual Review of Competency Progression (ARCP) panel when assessing a foundation doctor’s progress, starting with the initial meeting with the foundation doctor, planning the training year and gives examples of good report writing. The following areas are covered:

  • The ESR
  • Capabilities in Practice (CiPs)
  • Evidence
  • Setting up the Training Year
  • Some elements of the ARCP
