Training delivery review released for consultation

Training delivery review released for consultation

The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners has today released a comprehensive review of how general practice training is delivered in New Zealand.

College President Dr Tim Malloy says the review is a significant piece of work.

“The review document is a bold and future-focused, one which exemplifies our desire to support the development of a high-quality vocational training programme for general practitioners.”

He said the College was fortunate to have an experienced Project Board, which provided guidance and careful consideration throughout the review. The Board comprised Emeritus Professor Dr Campbell Murdoch, Dr Tana Fishman, Professor Lorraine Stefani, Dr John Langham, Dr Liza Lack and College CEO Helen Morgan-Banda.

“The Project Board was very mindful that the outcomes of the review will potentially affect many stakeholders. Being a consultation document, it is important we canvass the views of the sector.

“Training delivery is a complex issue, and the College has looked thoroughly at where we are now, how other countries and medical disciplines do their training and what options we have for the future delivery of GP training in New Zealand.

“The intention is to build a delivery framework for the next 10 to 15 years of GP training and follows on from the College being awarded a contract by Health Workforce New Zealand in 2012 to become the employer of first-year registrars.

“The outcomes will have an impact on issues such as when training is given, the employment of registrars and the better use of technology. It will affect registrars, teaching practices and funding providers”.

Dr Malloy said the review was also timely given the major changes made to the curriculum last year, although this review focuses purely on delivery, not content.

The consultation process will end on Monday 30 September and the final report is expected to be completed by the end of October. The intention would then be to develop the new programme with a proposed start date of 1 December 2014 when the new group of registrars begin their training.
