New Appraiser training courses

New Appraiser training courses


The latest round of New Appraiser Training courses is listed below.

Please note, the focus of the Medical Appraiser courses is intended (and funded) for primary and secondary care doctors for the purposes of Medical Revalidation.  The content is bespoke for this and whilst we welcome applications from other areas, our priorities are with the medical colleagues.

New Appraiser: Training format

We have developed our training programme so that it is suitable for remote delivery.  Please review details below of new processes:

  • The training course is delivered via a mix of mandatory online modules and 2x half-days attendance (via MS Teams)
  • Participants will still be assessed on the course and the outcome will be communicated ASAP post-training

Copies of the programme/timetable (for both AM and PM courses) are available for info; along with the assessment sheet in which tutors will assess participants' readiness to take on the appraiser role.

New Appraiser: Training courses

When considering your availability, please select up to 3 courses from the list and rank your preference accordingly.

  • Where the training course ID ends in A, it signifies morning sessions (9am to 12:30pm)
  • Where the training course ID ends in P, it signifies afternoon sessions (1:30pm to 5pm)

Please note this course is run over two half-days and you MUST attend both days of the same course.
