Implementation

Last updated: 28 June 2024

Basic Training

Planning for implementation is underway to launch new assessment tools and associated technology to support the curriculum standards and programmatic assessment approach. Watch this video to see why the Basic Training programs are changing. 

New trainees entering the programs in 2024 will continue to be enrolled under the PREP Basic Training curricula and program requirements.

The new Basic Training curricula is available on RACP Online Learning and we will provide sufficient notice about program requirements for 2025.

Advanced Training

In 2024, trainees starting in these training programs will be enrolled in the new curriculum: 

New curricula implementation starts with a transition year in 2024 following the curriculum standards but retaining existing work-based assessments.

If you're a trainee following a new curricula, see our implementation frequently asked questions for guidance and support.

Planning for 2025 implementation is underway to launch new assessment tools and associated technology to support the curriculum standards and programmatic assessment approach.

We will provide sufficient notice about program requirements for 2025.


RACP curriculum model

The new curricula comprise of curriculum standards and learning, teaching and assessment (LTA) programs.

Curriculum standards

The curriculum standards articulate what trainees need to be, do and know, are assessed throughout training, and are summarised as a list of learning goals.

Be Do Know
Competencies outline the expected professional behaviours, values and practices that trainees need to achieve by the end of training. Competencies are organised by the 10 domains of the Professional Practice Framework. Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) are essential work tasks that trainees need to be able to do by the end of training. Knowledge Guides provide guidance on important topics and concepts trainees need to know.

The LTA programs outline what trainees need to complete to demonstrate their learning throughout their training and are linked directly to the curriculum learning goals.

The new curricula drive a self-directed approach to learning (PDF). Trainees will complete a learning plan for each rotation, to allow them to plan with their supervisors’ ways to achieve the curriculum learning goals through everyday work tasks.

A programmatic assessment approach (PDF) will use a range of frequent low-stakes assessments, to generate an overall picture of trainee performance (using aggregated assessment data) and achievement across the breadth of the curriculum standards. New assessment tools are linked directly to the curriculum learning goals.
