The team behind NHS Change Day are asking people to make pledges of an action or idea. You can see our pledge on the NHS Change Day pledge wall .Read more...
MBBS Final Year Portfolio
A portfolio is a collection of documents providing evidence of learning, including an element of reflective practice. We want it to be genuinely useful for you. One focus should be on collecting, in a structured way, evidence that will assist you in writing application forms (e.g. Foundation Year) in the future. It must provide evidence of achievements and competencies and the ability to reflect on practice. Keeping a portfolio is now a part of all doctors’ lives so we hope this will also prepare you for the future.
We recommend that you keep copies anonymised where appropriate of your workplace assessments, your prescribing practice and your procedures cards, audits from the GP, etc.
What should it contain?

How to keep it?
Keep all the important documents as listed above in a folder.
Please label and index the portfolio clearly and file documents using the above table as an index. An index page and dividers separating sections make reviewing your portfolio much easier.
Anonymised patient clerkings and any supporting documentation can be added as appendices
Try to update your portfolio at least once a fortnight: this is much easier, and a more professional approach, than scrambling at the last minute to collate all the relevant documents.
