AMA Trainee Forum on College Initiatives to Support Flexible Training

The first AMA Trainee Forum of the year was held on 23 February 2023. AMA Council of Doctors in Training (AMACDT) Chair, Dr Hannah Szewczyk, facilitated a discussion on college initiatives to support flexible training with trainee chairs/representatives from Specialist Medical Colleges attending.

All medical colleges provide the opportunity for trainees to access and complete training flexibly. However, due to structural and cultural issues, trainees find that requesting and organising flexible training is difficult, leading to poor uptake. Often trainees are placed with the burden of negotiating their own terms of flexibility and support with not only colleges, but also with employers. All medical trainees should have easy access to flexible training supports with assistance from medical colleges.
