We need your feedback – Complete the April 2018 Training Post Evaluation

What did you think of the RCPI training post you completed this month?

You have the power to make a difference: Please complete the Training Post Evaluation by 27 April 2018

We need to know if you have any concerns about the training posts you completed in April 2018.

We are asking doctors in Basic Specialist Training in General Internal Medicine to complete a short online Training Post Evaluation. It only takes five minutes to complete.

In it you will be asked to evaluate the training post you completed this month, including the working conditions and the support that was, or wasn't, available to you.

Your honest feedback will help us identify any issues affecting the quality of training in specific posts or sites so that we can take action. 

Please help us improve the quality of training for all RCPI Trainees by completing the Training Post Evaluation today.

The online evaluation form will remain online until Friday 27 April 2018.

Play your role in shaping the future of training. We ask you to provide feedback - positive and negative.

What is the Training Post Evaluation?

We are contacting all RCPI Basic and Higher Specialist Trainees to ask them to complete this short, anonymous evaluation of their last training post.

The evaluation is to be completed after every post completed as part of BST or HST; that is every 3, 6, or 12 months depending on how often you rotate.

The purpose of this is to help us identify any issues affecting the quality of your training in specific posts or sites, so that we can take action. 

This information will allow us to benchmark each RCPI training post nationally, and enable us to continue to drive improvements in training.

To protect your anonymity, you will not be asked for any identifying information such as your name, date of birth or RCPI ID number.

To further protect your anonymity, we will analyse only aggregate data once more than two years of data have been collected and more than five Trainees have provided feedback on each post, we will begin to analyse data at site/post level.

Our objective is to deliver outstanding training with accountability. By and large, I believe training is a very positive experience for our Trainees, but there are situations where we can improve training on particular sites in particular areas. The only way we can gauge this is by getting accurate feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of every training post.
