As part of the Medical Associate Professions (MAP) programme, Health Education England with their Royal College and faculty partners, have developed the ‘Establishing Common Standards for Continuing Professional Development, Assessment and Appraisal Guidelines for Medical Associate Professionals’.

This document provides clear guidance for the trained and qualified MAP NHS workforce, and sets out common standards for ongoing CPD, assessment and appraisal. This guidance should be used to enable MAPs, with the support of employers, to plan, institute, maintain and evidence their ongoing clinical, academic, and professional learning to common standards via their commitment to their professional development. 

Co-author of the document and RCSEd Faculty of Perioperative Care Lead Charlie Auld, chaired the working group to produce this and a copy of the guidelines can be found on the HEE website by clicking here
