PYA process for Hepatology 2020/21
PYA process for Hepatology 2020/21 (NB to contact the JRCPTB email email@example.com)
The JRCPTB oversees Gastroenterology trainees seeking Hepatology subspecialty accreditation, based on national Hepatology ATP recruitment and an annually updated academic trainee list. The JRCPTB will email trainees as to whether they wish to be considered for this prior to their gastro PYA on the proviso that the JRCPTB has received the necessary information from the home LETB.
A Hepatology PYA form is established on Eportfolio which documents achievement to date towards accreditation with remaining targets/training. The form is ideally completed ahead of (remotely) or at the same time as the Gastroenterology PYA by the Hepatology subspecialty TPD although final year trainees doing their Hepatology advanced year could have the PYA at the mid-point of that year.
The Hepatology subspecialty TPD will liaise with the trainee and Gastroenterology TPD as necessary prior to PYA completion. At the Gastroenterology PYA it will need to be recognised that trainees who complete the ATP year cannot count credit from OOPR towards their CCT.
At the Gastroenterology final ARCP, the trainee’s Gastroenterology TPD will need to include Hepatology as a subspecialty on the outcome 6 form and will then review the Hepatology PYA targets stating whether these have been met along with the Gastroenterology targets. Accreditation will be ratified by the JRCPTB on receipt of an appropriately completed outcome 6.
It is recognised that COVID is disrupting training so allowance for this will be made where possible.
