Review of Prevocational Training Requirements for NZ Doctors

A Review of Prevocational Training Requirements for Doctors in New Zealand - consultation paper

The Medical Council initiated a review of prevocational training in late 2010, and released an initial consultation paper in May 2011. We are now undertaking a second stage of the consultation focusing on issues relating to the education and training of Interns, specifically the first two postgraduate years, PGY1 and PGY2.

The Council is proposing a number of changes to prevocational training. The proposals include the setting of learning outcomes (within a curriculum framework) and methods of assessment, changes to clinical attachments, and a greater focus on ongoing quality education and training through PGY1 and PGY2 by the use of a Professional Development Plan (PDP). The proposals aim to promote good medical practice, and ensure safety and quality of patient care.

You will find a link to the consultation paper A Review of Prevocational Training Requirements for Doctors in New Zealand: Stage 2. A second consultation paper on the proposed changes to prevocational training on the front page of our website at www.mcnz.org.nz. The consultation paper discusses the current problems with prevocational training and the objectives we want to achieve.

We will be holding meetings in a number of centres throughout New Zealand through the months of March and April. This will provide opportunity to discuss the proposed changes.

The final date for submissions is Monday, 6 May 2013.
