Clinical Academic Appraisal
Cardiff University has revised its appraisal arrangements for clinical academics holding honorary NHS contracts with Health Boards / Trusts in light of the General Medical Council's revalidation requirements.
The revised arrangements accommodate joint appraisal of clinical academics by the University and the NHS and so are compliant with Follett principles. The revised appraisal arrangements support medically licensed doctors for revalidation and are also suitable for dentists.
A set of prompts has been developed to assist clinical academics in structuring their appraisal evidence for the domain on “ Teaching, research, innovation and leadership ”. University appraisers may also find these helpful in conducting the appraisal meeting. Guidance on role expectations for members of academic staff by career pathway is available here.
