E-portfolios for doctors
The e-portfolio is an electronic tool for doctors to store and record a collection of evidence that demonstrates their learning achievements and abilities.
It promotes life-long learning by encouraging doctors to reflect on their own needs and clinical competences, and the needs of their patients.
An e-portfolio can help you to:
- keep documents together to evidence your progress and learning
- reflect on your learning (very important - see section below on reflecting)
- think about your personal development plan (PDP), encouraging you to think about what you need to do next to help you progress in your career
- prepare for an interview
- develop your CV
Reflecting on your learning may be quite new to you so you may find the Academy and COPMeD reflective practice toolkit helpful.
