OUR TRAINING PROGRAM
THE PHYSICIAN TRAINING TEAM
The ACT Physician Training Network offers a comprehensive written examination preparation program to help trainees prepare for the Royal Australasian College of Physicians written examination.
Trainees receive comprehensive tutorials during protected teaching time every Friday, covering the key topics needed to prepare for the RACP examination. As the exam approaches, dedicated Q&A sessions are held to address common questions and topics raised in the exams.
In addition, trainees are offered trial written examinations in partnership with leading NSW hospitals to help them benchmark their performance against their peers and ensure they are exam-ready.
Trainees are also encouraged and supported to attend a two-week external written examination revision course the year before their exam.
The ACT Physician Training Network offers a rigorous clinical examination preparation program.
This consists of regular Saturday trial examinations, dedicated 'SCORPIO' short case sessions, and a formalised long case mentor system with regular rostered long cases with members of the RACP National Examiner Panel.
Trainees are also offered the opportunity to participate in "The Canberra Clinical Course", a popular education program helping candidates succeed in the long and short case examinations.
A formal trial examination is also run under exam conditions each year.
Teaching and Research Opportunities
The ACT Physician Training Network is proudly affiliated with the Australian National University (ANU) medical school. Registrars have the opportunity of taking on formal tutor or examiner positions within the medical school. Registrars may also be invited to give lectures to junior medical officers as part of the prevocational education program, or present at the hospital-wide Grand Rounds. Trainees are encouraged to participate in programs such as Teaching on The Run to improve their clinical teaching skills.
A myriad of research opportunities are available, including departmental-based research or large-scale projects affiliated with the John Curtin School of Medical Research.
Trainees may also choose to participate in formal post-graduate education courses through the University of Canberra or ANU, or via remote online learning.
