What Post-CCT Fellowships can the BAD quality assure?
The BAD can only quality assure Post-CCT Fellowships that are held at an accredited centre (as above) that has been approved by the relevant specialist society. The Educational Guide (appointed by the funding Trust or department) will also need to alert the BAD Academic Administrator prior to the Fellow starting in post/at start of post to have their Fellowship quality assured by the BAD. Fellowships must meet the minimum assessments detailed in the curricula above and submitted on time.
How to apply for a Post-CCT Fellowship accredited by the BAD?
Post-CCT Fellowships are funded by NHS Trusts, seeking to both provide subspecialist training as well as fill a service need. Posts will be advertised in open competition via NHS Jobs or via iindividual Trusts. The Fellow will need to ensure that the site where Fellowship is offered is accredited by checking with the specialist society.
How will the post CCT Fellowship be assessed by the BAD?
The curricula (above) also contains guidance on a sample job plan and the minimum assesments that need to submiited to the BAD to accredit the fellowship. The Fellow must submit their evidence to the BAD Education Board for distribution to two independent assessors appointed by the relevant sub-specialist society. This is at 6 months into the fellowship and the end of the fellowship (or at 6 monthly intervals if the fellowship is longer than 12 months). A recommendation is then made to the BAD Education Board, who issues a Certificate of Completion if all the curriculum standards are deemed to have been met.
