A fresh look at learning plans
The learning plans are highly valued by registrars as a log book of learning, a framework of exam progress, a guide book for professional ambitions and a diary of their progress with their Supervisor, Training Advisor and RVTS.
The current format is not ideal
Well it’ll be different?
The focus is about the Registrar defining his/her needs; refining his/her goals and clearly outlining how their Supervisor and T/A will ensure the goals are achieved.
ie: my stuff; Exam stuff; Clinic stuff:
3 monthly T/A 3-ways to underline this.
What goes in the plan
And what doesn’t…
e.g., At the end of this term, I will be able to…
- be confident at prescribing oral contraceptives
- perform simple skin excisions
Be confident at prescribing contraception
-Attend FPQ course
Think about 3-ways you may have had and what they could achieve?
