About your training position
Core training must be undertaken at accredited settings.
Once you have secured a training position, you must prospectively apply for approval as per the Progression through Training Policy.
The College is not involved in the recruitment and selection of trainees. Our role is to set and monitor standards for selection and provide advice to settings and their selection committees.
Training approval and certification
Approval of training periods are determined by the Training Committee in Addiction Medicine (TCAM). To be approved, your individual training program must be consistent with the training requirements and appropriate for the stage of training you have reached.
Upon completion of each rotation or calendar year of training, the TCAM will review your progress according to the training requirements. If you have satisfactorily completed all training requirements, the TCAM will certify that training period.
See variations in training for processes covering dual, joint, conjoint and post-Fellowship training.
See flexible training options for information on part-time training, interruptions to training, withdrawing from training and time limits.
Rotation or supervision changes
Changes to your rotation require you to re-submit an application form (if online registration is closed) to your training committee as soon as possible. This includes any changes to sites, dates of rotations and flexible training arrangements.
Change to your supervision must be notified as soon as possible by submitting a Supervisor Details Amendment Form (DOC)
Some changes may require a review of the approval decision and can affect the certification of your training.
