About the Internal Medicine training programme

The purpose of this course is to set out how to write a meaningful and effective educational supervisor report for Internal Medicine Training and the preparation needed to achieve this.

The Educational Supervisor Report (ESR) is the key document considered by the Annual Review of Competency Progression (ARCP) panel when assessing a trainee’s progress. This module sets out how to prepare to write this report, starting with the initial meeting with the trainee, planning the training year and gives examples of good report writing.

This programme covers the following areas:

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

The course is aimed at educational supervisors of Internal Medicine trainees.

More information

The practice of Medicine is changing. A growing aging population means there are more patients with multiple co-morbidities which are not necessarily aetiologically linked, except because they occur more frequently with increasing age.

The Shape of Training report recognised this and required a shift in the training of doctors with a much greater emphasis on ‘generalism’. This challenge was picked up by the physicians with the development of the new Internal Medicine Training programmes. Their development has also provided an opportunity to move significantly away from the previous generation of training to one that takes a more holistic approach to the assessment of each trainee
