AMACDT and Trainees Review AMC Standards for Specialist Medical Program Accreditation

The first AMA Trainee Forum of the year was held on 14 March 2024. AMA Council of Doctors in Training (AMACDT) Chair, Dr Hannah Szewczyk, facilitated a discussion on the review of the Standards for Assessment and Accreditation of Specialist Medical Programs by the Australian Medical Council (the standards), with trainee chairs/representatives from Specialist Medical Colleges attending.

Periodic reviews of the standards present a valuable opportunity for trainees to provide tangible feedback and advice based on their experiences with specialist medical training programs. The standards regulate a broad range of matters across the entire spectrum of trainee experience. The anticipated review of the standards in 2024 will be a focus of AMACDT advocacy throughout the year, with this trainee forum informing AMACDT’s upcoming work on the issue.
