The Cardiology training programme is a 5-year programme, starting at ST3. During this time, the trainee’s work will be monitored for satisfactory progress and subject to annual reviews in the form of ARCPs. Progression on the programme will be dependent upon these reviews and assessed against the JRCPTB decision aid matrix.
The posts on this rotation have been approved for Specialist Training by the Royal College of Physicians. The posts attract National Training Numbers and provide training towards a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT). The Postgraduate Dean has confirmed that this post has the necessary educational and staffing approvals.
