Current Core Curriculum

Capabilities in Practice (CiPs)

The Core Curriculum is divided into 14 Capabilities in Practice (CiP).

10 CiPs are related to generic or professional capabilities (Professional Identities 1, 2 and 4 below). These are high-level statements of what a doctor should be able to do at the end of their training.

Each CiP outlines the key skills you will be expected to have, along with a set of descriptors to help you assess your progress. The education package on RCOG eLearning contains detailed guides to the CiPs including a statement of expectations as to progress.
