The RST has published nine example appraisal portfolios to help doctors understand what a good appraisal portfolio looks like.
The portfolios have been prepared by three medical royal colleges and faculties:
- Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management
- Royal College of Physicians (London)
- Royal College of Surgeons (London)
Each fictional portfolio is based on a doctor with a different speciality but will also be relevant to doctors in other specialties. All portfolios exceed the minimum standards for revalidation.
Presented as completed MAG Model Appraisal Forms, the portfolios are designed to be viewed together, as they illustrate different approaches.
The portfolios are expected to develop and evolve in the future, as accumulating experience of revalidation-ready appraisal leads to greater understanding of good practice in this area.
