Evaluation of moving to a Virtual ARCP system

The Annual Review of Competency Progression (ARCP) process operates inconsistently across specialties with differences in how processes are followed.

The Wales Deanery is phasing in virtual ARCPs for unproblematic trainees over two years. In this study, we are seeking to understand both positive and negative responses to using a virtual ARCP system.

We are adopting a mixed methods design, collecting data from telephone interviews and focus groups with ARCP panel members and surveys of trainees.
