ANZCA training program Curriculum

The curriculum articulates to trainees, fellows, other professional groups and the general
public the learning outcomes to be met by ANZCA trainees through a combination of
supervised clinical experience, courses, scholarly pursuits, self-directed learning and other
educational activities. It provides the basis upon which learning opportunities and assessments
will be focused.  It builds on the knowledge, skills and professional attributes that trainees
initially develop during medical school and postgraduate medical education and training, and
extends them into the context of anaesthetic care.  It also promotes continuing professional
development and contributions to the specialty after fellowship is attained.
