Annual Review of Competency Progression

The Annual Review of Competency Progression (ARCP) is the formal process by which a Postgraduate Doctor in Training's (PGDiT’s) progression through training is reviewed and assessed.

The ARCP panel of assessors confirms progress in each of the specialty training years and approves progress from one year to another.

The final ARCP panel at the end of training will make a recommendation on the award of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT). This recommendation will be based upon evidence that the PGDiT has covered the GP curriculum, including satisfactory workplace based assessments, the completion of all components of the MRCGP exam and reports submitted by both their Educational and Clinical Supervisors. The Panel Chair will sign off the ARCP form for approval by the RCGP.
