All newly appointed trainees are required to use the Royal College of Ophthalmologists E-Portfolio Log Book system to record the training undertaken whilst in the postgraduate training programme. This means trainees must enrol with the Royal College. The e-portfolio system is a useful tool if it is utilised in a proper fashion throughout the training year. Consequently the school strongly recommends and expects trainees to become familiar and engaged with this system at the earliest opportunity. Educational Supervisor’s (ES) will be assigned to the individual logbook of their trainees by the Royal College and this will allow them to provide their three mandatory supervisor reports (introductory, interim and final) throughout the training year. These reports form an essential part of the ARCP review so early engagement with the ES is encouraged upon the commencement of a new rotation. A trainee’s e-portfolio will be extensively reviewed during the Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP), and will form the basis of the given outcome.

E-portfolio administration is led by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and trainees who have concerns or issues should contact the e-portfolio department at the The Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
