PYR (penultimate year review) process in relation to Hepatology 2024-

An over-arching Gastroenterology PYR form will be completed for all trainees at the relevant time-point in their training.

For hepatology trainees, a completion checklist for core and advanced hepatology training will need to be uploaded to the e-portfolio ahead of final ARCP.

At final ARCP it should be evident that a trainee has:
• Completed 24 months hepatology training, including transplant centre experience, with no more than 6 months in an enhanced level 1 centre.
• Completed the relevant curriculum competencies and have established competence in variceal endoscopic therapy.

Academic Clinical Lecturers in hepatology do not need to necessarily break out into an ‘ATP’ year if they have accrued equivalent hepatology training/competencies.
