MRCGP – ePortfolio and Exams

The MRCGP is made up of; workplace-based assessment (WPBA) which is recorded on an ePortfolio, the Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA) and the Applied Knowledge Test (AKT). Each of these components is independent and addresses different competencies and skills, which would be expected of a GP Specialty Trainee but together they cover the curriculum for specialty training for general practice.  To obtain a Certificate in Completion of Training (CCT) the trainee must satisfactorily complete all three components as well as doing a full 36 months in GP Training.
