Call for volunteers to pilot the Professional Portfolio

August 25, 2009

If you have a non-traditional practice (e.g., non-direct patient care role), focus your practice on a very specific disease state or population, or have additional prescribing authorization, a knowledge assessment exam may not be the best measure of your competence. With this in mind, ACP is piloting a Professional Portfolio as a measure of competence. Now we need volunteers to help us develop the program.

Participants who fulfill all the requirements of the pilot will be exempt from competence assessment for three years.

Application deadline: Sept. 30

For further details, or to apply, please email Roberta Stasyk, Competence Director.

The Portfolio will not only serve as a chronicle of your professional acumen, but will also allow you to demonstrate to ACP how your planned and purposeful professional development lead to practice enhancement. The professional portfolio builds on the Continuing Professional Development Plan; participants will make statements about their continuing professional development and then provide evidence to prove that they have enhanced their practice.

Pilot participants will be given at least four months to compile their portfolios.

Participants who fulfill all the requirements of the pilot will be exempt from competence assessment for three years.

Application deadline: Sept. 30.

For further details, or to apply, please email Roberta Stasyk, Competence Director.
