The RACP Education Renewal Program heralds an innovative new era of medical education for physicians in Australia and New Zealand. A series of interrelated projects, the program will be delivered over several years from 2018, and will transform the trainee journey, educator experience and physician workforce of the future.
We are redesigning, developing and implementing 40 curricula across the College’s Basic and Advanced Training programs following a competency-based medical education framework.
We are aligning accreditation requirements to the renewed curriculum so that training providers can enable suitable learning environments that meet the learning needs of trainees, and the teaching needs of supervisors.
We are developing a three-stage model of selection into Basic Training, which will include eligibility, selection assessment, and locally defined and delivered selection methods.
We are developing an interactive online learning series that will complement the revised Basic Training curricula, and build on the current Victorian Physician Education program of lectures.
We are introducing computer-based testing for the Basic Training Written Examination.
We have reviewed the assessment process for the Divisional Clinical Examination and devised a simplified rubric that redefines the objectives of the Examination.
We have developed a new Educational Leadership and Supervision Policy which sets out the principles that underpin RACP training programs, and an accompanying framework.
Together, these improvements will modernise the training experience and ensure that our trainees graduate with the skills they need to be world-class physicians that provide patients, their families and the community with the best care possible.
The changes will affect trainees, educators, Fellows and the wider healthcare sector in varying ways. In order to ensure that the program delivers positive outcomes for all involved, we are consulting with a wide range of stakeholders on an ongoing basis and will work closely with our sector colleagues to advocate for and implement these changes.
