Purpose of the MRP
The purpose of the midterm review of progression (MRP) is to:
- Ensure that each STP trainee receives an independent evaluation of their progression;
- Give confidence to trainees, training officers, commissioners and regulators that training is being monitored providing an independent marker of progression; and
- Offer trainees and their training officers an opportunity to alert the School to any concerns, issues or barriers to progression.
By the time of the MRP, trainees are required to have completed and signed off all of the specialist assessments and competences associated directly with their rotation modules.
It is important that trainees and training officers recognise that the MRP is a summative process. This means that the evidence about each trainee’s progress and development will be used to make a decision about the trainee’s suitability to progress to year 3 of the STP and entry to the Objective Structured Final Assessment (OSFA).
