Single Accreditation - Deadline Approaching

Hi All, 

Please see information from the JRCPTB with regards to single accreditation and exemption forms. 

Recording exemption from transferring curriculum - Group 1 specialities


In order to ensure the correct curriculum and associated forms are available on trainees' ePortfolio accounts, we have asked trainees in group 1 specialities to complete a declaration if it has been agreed they can remain on the previous curriculum under the GMC approved transitional arrangements for group 1 specialties. Trainees have been asked to confirm they are exempt because they fall into one of the following categories and do not wish to transition:


  • Trainee in their final year of training (pro rata for less than full time trainees)
  • Trainee who started training in Cardiology (single accrediting), Genito-urinary Medicine, Palliative Medicine or Neurology prior to August 2021
  • Trainee in the final two years of Acute Internal Medicine (AIM) training
  • The postgraduate dean has agreed it is not in the interests of patient safety or impractical to support the trainee moving to the new curriculum.


Trainees in these categories are required to complete the form by Monday 18 July. They have been notified via the ePortfolio and Training Matters newsletter

Further information here including how to put the form on your e-Portfolio
