Launch of the ANZCA Diploma of Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine

In April 2016, ANZCA Council supported the Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine (DHM) Working Party recommendations to undertake a limited restructure of the ANZCA Certificate of DHM.

The DHM Project Group was established in June 2016 and is leading the change of the certificate to a 12-month, full-time equivalent qualification titled the ANZCA Diploma of Advanced DHM.

The ANZCA Diploma of Advanced DHM will launch on July 31, 2017 under the governance of the ANZCA DHM Sub-Committee.

ANZCA is planning regular communication updates via email and the ANZCA website leading to the launch of the ANZCA Diploma of Advanced DHM.

The following documents of the diploma training program will be released on the DHM training webpage:

  • ANZCA Advanced Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Curriculum
  • ANZCA Handbook for Advanced Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Training
  • ANZCA Handbook for Advanced Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Accreditation.

The College is in the process of developing transition guidelines for supervisors of training and trainees, and planning for accreditation of training facilities.

Please direct any queries to dhm@anzca.edu.au or ANZCA reception +61 3 9510 6299 and advise whether your query relates to DHM training or accreditation.
