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.
