Changes to the training program

Over the past 12 months ANZCA has been making changes to the Training Program, following a period of evaluation. The changes include improvements to the curriculum, the handbook, regulation 37 and the training portfolio system (TPS). 


A summary of upcoming changes


  • VOP target changes for paediatric anaesthesia, regional and local anaesthesia and vascular surgery and interventional radiology (IT, BT and AT).
  • Recording VOP cases in the TPS (all trainees).
  • Provisional fellowship training (AT and PFT).
  • Provisional Fellow Training requirements in weeks.
  • The training portfolio system (TPS) has been enhanced to better support the training program.
  • Guidance videos are available in Networks to help you navigate the TPS.
  • Pro rata refund of annual fees for trainees who withdraw or are withdrawn from the training program.
  • Attendance at mandatory courses for example EMAC course, can be recorded as clinical anaesthesia time.
 Further changes will be rolled out later in 2018.
