Basic Training Accreditation Consultation

The RACP's Basic Training Accreditation Consultation is underway. We are gathering feedback from key stakeholders on the proposed Basic Training Accreditation Requirements, in accordance with the Training Provider Standards.

The proposed requirements reflect changes in medicine and specialist training environments since introducing the current Basic Training Accreditation Requirements. They are aligned with the new Basic Training Program which will be implemented by four early adopter sites in 2020.

Consultation has now closed. Thank you to all who participated.

Closed signCall for early adopters now closed

Expressions of interest for early adopter implementation for the new Basic Training curricula closed on 9 April 2019.

The intent was to form a small selection of training settings to rollout the new Basic Training curricula programs and help inform the full implementation of the new programs across Australia and New Zealand.

A review of submissions is underway and nominees will be informed of the outcome via email in late April 2019.

Updates and information about the curricula renewal process will continue to be announced across the coming months.

For all curricula renewal enquiries, contact the Curriculum Development team.

Three hands raised

We need early adopters

The new Basic Training Program is approved for initial implementation.

The program unveils a new three-phase structure: Foundation, Consolidation and Completion.

In late 2018, the College Education Committee approved the new Basic Training curriculacurricula standards and learning, teaching and assessment requirements that underpin the new Basic Training Program.

The selection into Basic Training process won't change for the initial rollout of the new curricula.

We are looking for early adopter training settings to help lead the gradual implementation of the new Basic Training Program in 2020.

Directors of Physician or Paediatric Education and Health Service Delivery Providers are encouraged to learn more about this important opportunity and sign up.

Expressions of interest are now closed for 2020. Thank you to all who signed up.
