Advanced Training

 Launch Portal Now

Advanced Training is undertaken by way of a prospectively approved program, supervised by a College accredited supervisor, and generally accredited at the end of each 12 month period.  Advanced Training is in a specialty of either Adult Internal Medicine or Paediatrics & Child Health.

Learning Objectives for Advanced Training

The Advanced Training Curricula build on and further contextualise the knowledge and clinical skills gained during basic training within a chosen specialty.  Specialties provide a contextual focus for the further development, and assessment, of a range of higher order learning objectives drawn from the Professional Qualities Curriculum. These curricula will have an Adult or Paediatric specific focus as applicable.

At the completion of their overall training program, it is expected that a new Fellow will:

  • have developed and demonstrated the specific clinical skills, and have acquired the theoretical knowledge, required for competent practice within their discipline or area of clinical specialisation ;
  • have demonstrated their knowledge of, and ability to competently utilise, the range of common or generic knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours required by all Physicians/Paediatricians, regardless of their area of specialty ;
  • have a comprehensive general understanding of, and exposure to, the range of related disciplines;
  • be able to communicate effectively and sensitively with patients and their families, colleagues and other allied health professionals
  • be competent in the comprehensive assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of their patients;
  • know when to order and how to interpret the results of diagnostic tests;
  • understand and acknowledge the importance of the various socio-economic factors that contribute to illness and vulnerability;
  • be aware of and sensitive to the special needs of patients from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds;
  • be able to work within, lead, and fully utilise multidisciplinary team-based approaches to the assessment, management and care of their patients;
  • recognise the need for, have developed, and be able to apply, appropriate patient advocacy skills;
  • have the skills required to process new knowledge and the desire to promote and maintain excellence through actively supporting or participating in research and a program of continuing professional development;
  • be able to contribute to the education of patients, colleagues, Trainees, junior medical officers and other health care workers.
