Have you tried our A to Z Section?
To be certain that you have the chance to get
maximum marks for your CTR, we have instigated some timelines
during your HST to help you ensure that the CTR is not left to the
last minute. It is worth reflecting that those FCEM candidates who
have mostly completed their CTR by the end of ST4 do best overall
in the FCEM
The steps that need to be taken whilst you are
on the HST programme are:
A draft CTR
This should include:
The draft CTR must be seen and reviewed by your educational
supervisor and will then be discussed at your ARCP.
If this has not been done or felt to be
unsatisfactory you will be given an ARCP2, to allow further time
for satisfactory completion.
This needs to have been proof read by your
educational supervisor and to be in the format that you can submit
it for FCEM. Many candidates seek opinions of other consultants on
their CTR. Whilst this is a good idea, please do not seek
assistance from more than 2 or 3 consultants.
Please give your educational supervisor time
in which to read the CTR. It can often take 4-6 hours to read a
CTR, check literature reviews etc, and make comments. Do not expect
them to be able to do it the night before an ARCP or the closing
date for the FCEM!
It also needs to have been read by the Head of
School or Training Programme Director before it can be submitted
The timelines for trainees who are less than
full time are the same as above. The timings for the end of ST4 may
not fit in exactly with the ARCP process, but the ARCP panel will
expect to see appropriate progress with the CTR.
