Training provider accreditation promotes the delivery of quality training, which results in competent physicians who provide high quality patient care.
Accreditation Renewal commenced in 2015 to develop a comprehensive, RACP-wide strategy and program for accrediting training providers that:
- links directly to RACP curricula
- streamlines and coordinates processes
- provides flexibility
- assesses training providers’ capacity to train
The Australian Medical Council (AMC) and the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) require the RACP to maintain standards of workplace training. We achieve this through our Training Provider Accreditation Program, which provides a framework for the assessment and recognition of training providers.
In 2018, the RACP released the Training Provider Accreditation Program (PDF) including the Training Provider Standards and Training Network Principles.
Supporting the Standards, accreditation requirements for Adult Internal Medicine and Paediatrics & Child Health Basic Training Programs have been developed. These requirements are actions which need to be addressed by a setting offering a Basic Training Program.
Our implementation towards the introduction of Outcome Accreditation is a significant change from the current accreditation model and requires a phased implementation approach, commencing with settings offering Basic Training in 2021.
