Accreditation reports - prevocational medical training providers
It is the Council’s role to accredit and monitor training providers and to promote medical education and training in New Zealand. To ensure that standards are met for medical education and training, the Council accredits training providers.
Prevocational medical training
Following graduation from medical school, prevocational medical training spans two years over postgraduate year 1 (PGY1) and postgraduate year 2 (PGY2).
Training is undertaken by all graduates of accredited New Zealand and Australian medical schools as well as doctors who have passed the New Zealand Registration Examination (NZREX Clinical). Doctors undertaking PGY1 and PGY2 training are known as interns.
Requirements training providers must meet
For the Council to accredit a training provider for prevocational medical education training, over PGY1 and PGY2 it must provide:
- structures and systems which ensure interns can attain the learning outcomes of the New Zealand Curriculum Framework for Prevocational Medical Training (NZCF).
- an integrated system of education, support and supervision for interns.
- 13-week clinical attachments for interns that meet Council accreditation standards, providing clinical experience as well as high quality education and learning.
