Annual review of competence progression (ARCP)
What is ARCP?
The ARCP is a review of all of the evidence regarding a foundation doctor's performance over a year of practice. The decision about whether or not a foundation doctor's performance in each of the 20 'professional capabilities' (Foundation training outcomes) has met or exceeded the minimum required standard for satisfactory completion of F1, or the foundation programme as a whole, will involve an overall judgement summarised in the end of year report from the educational supervisor and reviewed by the ARCP panel. The ARCP panel judgment will include review of any concerns which have been raised. The ARCP panel is convened by the Foundation Programme Director and their judgement will form the basis of the Foundation Programme Director/Tutor's recommendations regarding satisfactory completion of F1 or and the foundation programme as a whole. (FP Curriculum (2016), p. 48)
