Consumer Engagement

The way medicine is taught and delivered is undergoing profound global change.

Increasingly, the voices of patients and other consumers of healthcare are being heard, both as part of the delivery of care and in the way healthcare professionals are trained and educated. It’s a practice known as patient centred care – placing patients at the heart of everything we do.

Our College is committed to ensuring all types of healthcare consumers are engaged in the way our next generation of specialists are being educated and learning on the job.
