Assessment Strategy for 2021 Anaesthetics Curriculum

Published: 10/01/2023

How the programme of assessment is to be used with the curriculum

The anaesthetic curriculum uses an outcome-based curriculum with 14 domains and 3 stages of training. The key capabilities relating to the learning outcomes, which are required at each stage of training, are listed together with examples of evidence that may be used to demonstrate their attainment.

The programme of assessment grid sets out the assessment requirements at each stage of training and those that must be completed at key progression points.

The grid outlines where formative and summative assessments are to be used. The broad range of assessments generate the necessary evidence required for global judgements to be made about satisfactory performance, progression in and completion of training.
