E-portfolio



The CEM e-portfolio is primarily available for post-2007 run-through trainees, core specialty trainees (CT1-3), higher specialty trainees and those in FTSTA and LAT posts to record and store key documents for progression through training. The CEM requires all post-2007 speciality trainees at these grades to use the e-portfolio.

ACCS trainees with parent specialties other than Emergency Medicine are advised not to register with the CEM e-portfolio.  Physician trainees should register with the Physician e-portfolio for all parts of their training, and Anaesthetics trainees should seek the advice of their educational supervisor as to the appropriate documentation to use.

From August 2010 the e-portfolio will also be available for old-style SpRs, Republic of Ireland SpRs and non-trainees.  The College does not require these groups to use the e-portfolio and local guidance should apply.  Please note, these users will be identified on the system as ‘non-trainee – core trainee level’ or ‘non-trainee-higher specialist trainee level’ purely to distinguish them from StRs for monitoring purposes.


Access to the e-portfolio

The e-portfolio is accessible at www.nhseportfolios.org and a username and password is required for access.  In August each year every user should return a User Details Form to the College office.  The form is downloadable below.  The form notifies us of the information we require before the e-portfolio can be used, in particular the posts and educational supervisors for the forthcoming year.  Those in non-training posts must identify an EM consultant to act as an educational supervisor. If you do not already have an account on the e-portfolio we will issue a user name and password on receipt of this form.

Note:  We are no longer requiring the educational supervisor signature on the user details form

 

If you have feedback on the e-portfolio - please complete a feedback form (in the documents list above).

Fees – Specialty Trainees and Specialist Registrars

The fee for access to the e-portfolio is covered by the annual training fee payable by all Specialty Trainees and Specialist Registrars in August of each year.  In August 2014 the fee is £90 for those who pay subscriptions to the College for Associate Membership, Membership or Fellowship and £300 for those who do not.  The fee is payable by cheque made out to the College of Emergency Medicine and can be returned with the e-portfolio user details form or by credit/debit card.  Please be aware that Core Trainees (CT1-3) need to register with the College and HST trainees (ST4-6) and Run-Through-Trainees (ST1-6) need to enrol with the College and that these are separate processes to: paying the annual training administration fee; completing the E-portfolio User details form; Membership of the College; and registering with the deanery.

Fees – non-trainees and Republic of Ireland trainees

The fee for access to the e-portfolio for users who do not pay the annual training fee, non-trainees and Republic of Ireland trainees, is £50 for those who pay subscriptions for College membership and £100 for those who do not.  The fee is payable by cheque made out to the College of Emergency Medicine or by credit/debit card and should be returned with the e-portfolio user details form.
