Case Based Discussion assessment

In 2017 all candidates irrespective of the year they commenced training are required to meet revised assessment requirements for summative CBD and formative miniCEX.

Submission of case notes

New rules around submission of case notes for the Case Based Discussion (CBD) assessment will be implemented from 2017. Candidates are required to submit all twelve (12) case notes up front prior to the CBD sessions being scheduled. Candidates enrolling in 2017 need to ensure they submit their twelve case notes by:

·         First semester 2017A -  by the 17th March 2017

·         Second semester 2017B – by the 21st July


 If you are unable to meet these requirements or have limited availability in the semester to undertake the assessment sessions we suggest you not enrol until you can meet these requirements.

If cases are not received by the due date ACRRM cannot guarantee completion of the required three sessions by the end of the semester and this may result in withdrawal from the assessment.

Your key resource for CBD is:

The Handbook for Fellowship Assessment

Fees may be subject to review and ACRRM reserves the right to adjust fees each semester.
