Each trainee will be given access to the RCGP Trainee e-portfolio after having registered with the RCGP at the beginning of GP specialty training.  The e-portfolio will need to be accessed and updated online throughout the training programme, in both hospital and primary care posts.  It is used to record details of achievement in the AKT and CSA, document evidence of workplace based assessment (WPBA), and to create a record of learning.

To access the RCGP e-portfolio please click here.

A session on how to use the e-portfolio will take place towards the beginning of the ST1 year of the programme.

The RCGP have developed comprehensive guides on how to use the e-portfolio.  Please visit the links below to access them.
