Education Committee

The PMCWA Education Committee has a role in contributing to the State-wide, high quality sustainable educational program that meets the requirements of local hospitals standards to produce competent junior doctors to work effectively within the WA health system.

The Committee provides a forum for expert stakeholder consideration and is responsible for the identification, evaluation and monitoring of education and training programs for pre-vocational medical officers and other non-vocational doctors. The Committee will report to PMCWA on strategies and outcomes.

  3. Supporting clinicians in education and assessment of junior medical staff by:
    developing resources and guidelines to assist clinical supervisors; and
