13 Integrating old and new frameworks SpRsStRs Continue under the regulations laid out in the ‘Orange Guide’ (A Guide to Specialist Registrar Training) except where PMETB regulations have superceded them Train under the ‘Gold Guide’ (A Guide to Postgraduate Specialty Training in the UK) – including ‘old’ SpRs who ‘switch’ to the StR grade Minimum training period generally = One to two years SHO Four and a half years SpR Minimum training period = Five years as an StR (except medical microbiology and virology and infectious diseases trainees) Will not be required to undertake WBA (although may choose to do so) Must undertake WBA and provide appropriate evidence in preparation for the ARCP Will continue to undertake RITAWill undertake ARCP PMETB regulations apply to all trainees

14 Key features and changes In order to be eligible for the award of the CCT, all training must be prospectively approved by PMETB Any trainee wishing to count training that has not been prospectively approved by PMETB can either choose not count this training and continue in their programme until the award of the CCT, or apply to PMETB for the award of the CESR

15 Key features and changes SpRs and StRs going out of programme to undertake research (OOPR) or clinical training (OOPT) undertaking a supernumerary flexible training programme must have this approved prospectively by the deanery, RCPath and PMETB.

16 What the new pathology framework means for trainees Clearer idea of the expectations of each stage of training Ongoing constructive feedback on progress through WBA Confirmation of progress through Year 1 Assessment and MRCPath Hopefully, no surprises at the ARCP Taking responsibility for progress

17 What the new pathology framework means for educational supervisors Clearer idea of the expectations of each stage of training Ensuring they are appropriately trained, up-to- date and working towards requirements laid out in curriculum and Gold Guide Commitment to undertaking WBA as required and providing constructive feedback to trainees on their progress Flagging up concerns about a trainee early

18 What the new pathology framework means for assessors Must be familiar with workplace-based assessment tools and any training required to be an assessor Must be familiar with the curriculum in order that they can assess the trainee according to their stage of training Opportunity to formally participate in feeding back to the trainee about their progress in training

19 What the new pathology framework means for programme directors Participate in the local management of pathology training Working with RCPath to ensure local delivery of the curriculum Contributing to the RITA/ARCP processes Providing appropriate support for clinical and educational supervisors and trainees
