How to prepare for year-end

Recording your Professional Competence requirements in your ePortfolio

Here's a checklist of what you need to record in your ePortfolio so that your Annual Statement will show that you met your Medical Council requirements for the year:

  • 1 Audit or Quality Improvement Project
  • 20 Credits in the External CPD Category
  • 20 Credits in the Internal CPD Category
  • 5 Credits in the Personal Learning CPD Category
  • 50 CPD credits recorded overall

How to prepare for year end

You do not need to add evidence to your ePortfolio to get an Annual Statement, but it is important that you collect your evidence and keep it in a safe place in case you are asked to present it at a later date.

Don't forget your Personal Learning
