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.
The Terms of Reference for the Education Committee are as follows.
- Overseeing and co-ordinating the training and education of doctors in the early postgraduate years, focussing particularly on the first two years and thereafter on those doctors not in specialised vocational training.
- Monitoring and promoting the development and implementation of quality educational programs in all clinical settings employing pre-vocational trainees, to prepare them for unsupervised independent medical practice.
- Supporting clinicians in education and assessment of junior medical staff by:
