Where an ARCP panel meeting is being held for an individual undertaking an academic clinical fellowship or lectureship, or for a clinical scientist, the panel should also include at least one academic representative. Academic panel members should specifically take a view about the evidence of academic performance that is submitted.

An annual assessment of academic progress must be undertaken and should take place at least one month before the joint academic/clinical ARCP panel convenes.

The ARCP panel should take into consideration both clinical and academic competencies when calculating CCT date for ACLs and not just the clinical competencies especially if considering a post CCT extension.
