New Basic Training Program
The new Basic Training Program is a hybrid of time and competency-based training. There is a minimum requirement for trainees to complete three years of full-time equivalent clinical experience.
The curricula standards outline what trainees are expected to be (Competencies), know (Knowledge Guides) and do (Entrustable Professional Activities). These are supported by learning, teaching and assessment programs.
2020 Divisional Written Examination
In 2020, the Divisional Written Examination will be blueprinted to the new Basic Training curricula standards providing trainees and their supervisors with clear guidance on the curriculum areas covered by the examination.
Early adopter training settings are working with us to lead the rollout. Early adopters:
- test the new training program
- test supporting materials and activities
- develop a network of change champions
From the start of the clinical year in 2021, early adopters in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand will start implementing the new Basic Training program.

Requirements outlined in the handbook impact trainees at the listed settings only.
