Advanced Training Skills Modules (ATSMs)

Things to consider...

When choosing your ATSMs, it is worth considering the likely consultant appointments within your region or nationally, your personal career intentions and indeed your capability. We wish all trainees to work towards their strengths to enable them to have the best opportunity for a fulfilling future career.
 
You must complete two ATSMs to receive your Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) or equivalent. Usually this consists of one that is your career defining ATSM and will often have an intensity of 2. The other ATSM either complements this or shows your breadth of skills.
 
Most trainees are expected currently to complete the advanced labour ward practice ATSM, as obstetrics is a significant part of most new consultant job plans, and often listed as essential or desirable in person specifications. 
The ATSM course is valid for three years and trainees should undertake this when they are certain they will enroll or soon after enrolling for the ATSM . Trainees who found that their course had ‘expired’ would be expected to attend a further course, consistent with the requirement of all doctors to remain up-to-date. Time out of training for research, health or maternity leave will not grant an extension on the validity of the course. 
 
NEW ST6-7 and ATSM CURRICULA and Evidence for sign off of CiP
For each CiP  
- at least three pieces of evidence for each CIP to be signed off. These can be mixture of CBD, minicex and reflective practice. Some CiPs are made of several items and may require more than 3 pieces of evidence for sign off (i.e ALWP). 
For procedures: a self-assessment + three OSATS confirming competence from two different Consultants as a minimum.
-If competency already acquired in core training (i.e. manual rotation) one OSAT confirming competence will suffice. However as we may not have access to the previous evidence, please ask the ES to state clearly that the competency was signed off in
- You are also expected to complete two NOTTS (one for obs and one for gynae ) and these can be  for the ATSM or for the core curriculum. 

Completion of ATSM

To get signed off for your ATSM, all the items in the e-portfolio and curriculum must be signed off by the Educational Supervisor. The e-portfolio and any additional evidence ( Compulsory course, quality improvement projects etc) must be submitted to the regional preceptor.

Evidence of clinical competencies and Work Place Based Assessments (WBPAs) must be dated within 12 months of subscribing to the ATSM

Courses and conferences must be dated within 3 years of subscribing to the ASTM. The ATSM course is valid for three years. Trainees who found that their course had ‘expired’ would be expected to attend a further course, consistent with the requirement of all doctors to remain up-to-date. Time out of training for research, health or maternity leave will not grant an extension on the validity of the course. 

  • You’ll need to sign the form, and also obtain signatures from:

    • your ATSM Educational Supervisor(s)

    • your ATSM Preceptor(s)

    • your deanery ATSM director

  • The form can be sent by mail or electronically. All the pages in the form must be sent.

The ATSM in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery for the Excision of Benign Disease is recruited nationally and will also require inter-deanery transfer. Details will be emailed round when available.
