Overview….. • What is PPDP? • Why is PPDP important in your training? • What does PPDP involve? • When can you start?
The Personal and Professional Development Programme Personal Development Planning (PDP) Career Management and Guidance Personal Health and Well-Being
Academic development • Development of skills and knowledge to practise competently as a doctor • Ownership and reflection on academic progress • Lifelong learning skills
Career Development • Emphasis on early proactive approach to career development • Career development planning is a learnt skill and takes time, effort and commitment • Skills and attributes • professional • personal
Personal Health and Well-being • Doctor’s health sessions • Individual self-awareness/reflective work • Other resources • GMC Good Medical Practice • GMC/Medical Schools Council. Medical students: professional behaviour and fitness to practice
What the GMC says…… “Medical graduates should be able to reflect on their practice, be self-critical and carry out an audit of their own work and identify their own learning needs. The General Medical Council also suggests that personal portfolios are important in this regard because they allow students to identify their strengths and weaknesses, which in turn allows them to focus their learning more appropriately.”

The UK Foundation programme • In 2005, 10% of UK final year medical students failed to secure training posts in first round of applications • For FY1 posts from August 2007, 94% of Leicester students secured 1st choice post • Post-graduate training is increasingly competitive and market driven • There are NO guarantees for postgraduates • It is essential that you are well prepared for foundation programme application
Personal & Professional Development Why? • All doctors have an annual appraisal • All doctors have to keep a PPD portfolio • All doctors have to keep documentation of on-going training • All doctors have to reflect on their practice • All doctors have a responsibility to look after themselves
the unreflective practitioner I try not to think too much about what I do. I’m not very interested in learning from my experiences. Reflecting on what I do - thinking about how I can improve and develop - makes me a more effective, more professional practitioner. Would this attitude inspire confidence?
If we could create the perfect medical student, what would that student be like?What skills would that student possess?
Reflection and planning - How PDP works better writing skills improved revision skills Y O U A R E H E R E communication skills more effective time-management Where do you want to get to? How will you get there?
Fact 1 - scans 3 months after surgery revealed that the stented vein was not working – the operation had not led to the longer-term improvements initially hoped for. Fact 2 – collateral veins, used as an alternative to the main vein were, however, working fine and, indeed, doing a very good job. Q. What would a doctor need to consider before communicating this news to a patient?
PDP is a Process • Not about collection of documentation • About effecting change in the learning process • About taking ownership and control over your own academic, career and personal development
Key aim of PDP is to create self-directed learners who can…… • Identify their learning needs – knowledge, skill or attitude • Determine their strengths and weaknesses • Set learning goals to address weaknesses • Create strategies for achieving their goals
Imagine your time at University as a journey you have to navigate and pilot. PDP provides you with the tools and resources you need in order to map out: - where you are now (what are your current strengths and weaknesses)? - where do you need to be (what do you need to develop and improve on)? - how are you going to get there (what practical steps will you take in order to make the improvements you desire)? Breaking it down…….

Presentation Skills “Giving presentations is a key professional skill. Doctors are often required to present cases, communicate research findings, and teach medical students. Nevertheless, many doctors feel anxious when undertaking these basic tasks.” (BMJ Careers, June 2006)
