2021 survey insights

Results from the 2021 New Fellow Survey indicate that 87 per cent of new Fellow respondents felt their training prepared them for unsupervised professional practice. Some preferred areas for further professional development included topics related to:

  • career planning and advice
  • leadership and managing people
  • managing the transition from trainee to Consultant/Specialist
  • setting up a private practice
  • mentoring and/or finding a mentor


All members who completed a Division, Faculty or Chapter training program between 2 October 2020 and 31 March 2022 are eligible to take the survey.

  • identify areas for training improvements
