Definitions of scopes


A doctor who has completed the requirements of a provisional general scope will be registered within a general scope of practice. Examples are doctors who have completed their first post-graduate year and may be in vocational training and doctors who have not started, or have chosen not to do, vocational training.

A general scope of practice does not mean the doctor is working in general practice which is its own specialty. Doctors with a general scope can be working in any area of medicine.

Doctors practising within a general scope will be required to participate in an approved recertification programme to assist them in maintaining their competence.


A doctor who has completed their vocational training as a specialist and has appropriate qualifications and experience can be registered within a vocational scope of practice. This form of registration recognises the doctor as a specialist and allows them to work independently in New Zealand. A doctor registered in a vocational scope must participate in an approved continuing professional development programme to assist them in maintaining their competence.
