Definitions of scopes


A doctor who has completed a required period of practice in the Provisional General scope of practice will be registered within the General scope of practice.

All doctors who are registered in the General scope of practice must meet recertification requirements set by Council.

The principal recertification programme for General scope registrants requires enrolment in the 'inpractice' programme, administered by bpacnz. The recertification programme requirements include that doctors establish a professional collegial relationship with another doctor who is registered within the same or related vocational scope.

Limited exceptions to the requirement to enrol in the bpacnz recertification programme exist for General scope doctors who:

- are enrolled as a registrar and participating in a Council-accredited medical college vocational training programme. (these doctors will have an established relationship with a supervisor):

- have had their scope limited by the Medical Council to non-clinical practice.


A doctor who has completed his or her vocational training as a consultant and has appropriate qualifications and experience can be registered within a vocational scope of practice.

A doctor registered in a vocational scope must participate in an approved continuing professional development programme to maintain competence and be recertified each year.

Treatment interventions provided by psychiatrists will include biological, psychological and existential modalities. Psychiatrists also undertake supervision and consultation with other health professionals working with a broad range of issues.
