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.
Emergency Medicine is a field of practice based on the knowledge and skills required for the prevention, diagnosis and management of acute and urgent aspects of illness and injury affecting patients of all age groups with a full spectrum of undifferentiated physical and behavioural disorders. It further encompasses an understanding of the development of pre-hospital and in-hospital emergency medical systems and the skills necessary for this development.
