ACCS ARCP Checklists

Please use these Anaesthetic and Intensive Care checklists in preparation for your ARCP. Your ARCP will be conducted by your ACCS TPD using the portfolio platform and format he/she stipulates.

ACCS Anaesthesia Trainees

Please Note ACCS Anaesthesia CT 2b/3 Trainees should use the checklist and ARCP Criteria used for Anaesthesia Core Trainees.

ACCS Anaesthesia CT 2 Trainees can use the link above for ACCS EM/AM however at the bottom of this page you will find an ARCP checklist exclusively devised for your use. It combines the ARCP requirements from the ACCS and Anaesthesia Checklists into one convenient document.

Below is a clear description of the required evidence for your ARCP which will be conducted by your Core Anaesthetic TPD.

Your ARCP will be conducted entirely from the evidence presented on your Royal College e-Portfolio.

The evidence will be assessed in a structured manner according to the following checklist.

All the below information must be attached your ESSR. Failure to do so will lead to you having an unfavourable ARCP Outcome.

Your Educational Supervisor should refer to the checklist when reviewing your ESSR.
