ECSACOP, in conjunction with regulatory authorities of member states, is mandated to accredit prospective training sites. One of the key processes of program accreditation is site inspection of the institution proposing to offer the academic and clinical program leading to award of ECSACOP Fellowship.
Site inspection involves verification of resources to support the clinical training program in accordance with the ECSACOP curriculum. An accredited training site will provide ECSACOP trainees with the opportunity to improve on their clinical skills and knowledge and ensure quality supervision during the training process.
ECSACOP training sites are assessed against a set of standards, identified by the College, which set out to ensure that a minimum standard of facilities and clinical supervision are available to support the delivery of training and the needs of trainees.
