ARCP 2024 Dates & Checklists

All ARCP dates and revised ARCP checklists for 2024 have been published on the ARCP webpage and supercede all previous ARCP checklists - see ARCPs

Introduction of a submission deadline for the ESSR and relevant ARCP evidence has proved very successful. We will continue to share submission dates only with trainees so that panel members have adequate time to review evidence. The actual panel review dates are one week after this submission date for anaesthesia and two weeks after the submission date for ICM ARCPs.

The submission dates for Summer 2024 Anaesthetic ARCPs are detailed below

Anaesthesia CT1 - 1st July 2024
Anaesthesia CT2/ACCS CT3 - 25th June 2024
Anaesthesia CT3/ST3/ACCS CT4 - 20th June 2024
Anaesthesia ST4&5 - 3rd July 2024
Anaesthesia ST6&7 - 26th June 2024
FICM - 18th June 2024

All LLP evidence, including the ESSR, must be present to view by the advertised submission date - therefore please co-ordinate the date for ESSR completion with your trainee as early as possible. Trainees who do not submit their evidence by the submission deadline are likely to receive an Outcome 5, followed by an Outcome 2.

All ARCPs will be held in absence.

In the event of an unsatisfactory outcome, a virtual meeting will be arranged within the next 10 day period with the Head of School and Training Programme Director. These dates are to be confirmed.
