ATSM: Vulval disease

The vulval disease ATSM will provide you with training in all aspects of vulval disease and equip you to develop this aspect of care in your future practice. It will also be useful if you wish to work in community-based gynaecology or provide a gyanecological oncology service in your future career.

Curriculum

The RCOG introduced an updated curriculum and logbook in August 2014. Please ensure you’re using the correct version (see below).

If you started the vulval disease ATSM on 1 August 2014, you must use the new vulval disease curriculum.

If you started the vulval disease ATSM between 2 February 2014 and 31 July 2014, you can switch to the new vulval disease curriculum if you wish, but this is not mandatory and you can continue to use the pre-August 2014 vulval disease ATSM curriculum; however, if you envisage that you won’t complete the vulval disease ATSM by 31 December 2015, you have to switch to the new curriculum.

If you started the vulval disease ATSM before 2 February 2014, you are not affected and can continue to use the pre-August 2014 vulval disease ATSM curriculum; however, if you envisage that you won’t complete the vulval disease ATSM by 31 December 2015, you have to switch to the new curriculum.

This ATSM has a work intensity score of 1.0.

Log of experience

The log of experience is designed to help you monitor your clinical experience and record your training. You don’t need to submit this log to the RCOG, but your School may want to see evidence of your experience. You can develop your own spreadsheet if you prefer.

Keep this log of experience in your Training ePortfolio. Record your training in as much detail as possible, for your own benefit as well as for your ATSM Preceptor and deanery.
