STP stakeholder forum a success
35 delegates attended our virtual Specialist Training Program (STP) stakeholder forum on 10 June.
The forum was originally scheduled as the forerunner to the Rural Special Interest Group meeting in Airlie Beach, Queensland but those plans were thwarted by travel restriction associated with the Victorian COVID-19 outbreak.
Thirty-five participants joined the virtual forum including representatives from the Commonwealth Department of Health, other specialist medical colleges, state health services, metropolitan and regional trainings sites, regional training hubs, training hospitals, and universities as well as ANZCA representatives, including four ANZCA councillors, Associate Professor Deborah Wilson, Dr Scott Ma, Dr Michael Jones and Immediate Past President Dr Rod Mitchell.
Attendees were provided an update on the Specialist Training Program from Commonwealth Department of Health representatives, discussed important aspects of training such as accreditation, recruitment and selection, trainee welfare, as well as an informative presentation from the Digital Health Agency.
