Supervision - IMG
Supervision is a requirement for registration for all new doctors registered in a provisional general, provisional vocational and special purpose scope of practice. It ensures us that a doctor is competent and fit to practice medicine.
‘Supervision is the provision of guidance and feedback on matters of personal, professional and educational development in the context of a doctor’s experience of providing safe and appropriate patient care.’
Purpose of Supervision
Supervision enables a doctor’s performance to be assessed over time, while they become familiar with:
- the New Zealand health system
- the required standard of medical practice
Who must be supervised?
The following doctors must be supervised:
- interns (PGY1 and PGY2 doctors who have graduated from New Zealand/Australian accredited medical schools and doctors who have passed NZREX)
- all international medical graduates (IMGs) registered on a provisional general, provisional vocational and special purpose scope of practice.
Interns (NewZealand/Australian graduates and NZREX graduates) - will have a nominated prevocational educational supervisor for their first year of working in New Zealand.
