Emergency Department Private Sector Clinical Supervision

The Emergency Department Private Sector Clinical Supervision program (EDPSCS) was established in 2011 to support the expansion of specialist training places outside of traditional public teaching hospitals into private hospitals that operate emergency departments.

Emergency Medicine Education and Training

Emergency Medicine Education and Training (EMET) provides education, training and supervision to the large number of doctors and other health professionals working in emergency departments and emergency care services – particularly in rural, regional and remote Australia – who are not specifically trained in emergency medical care.

Integrated Rural Training Pipeline

The Integrated Rural Training Pipeline (IRTP) initiative aims to deliver a sustainable, Australian-trained future medical workforce for regional, rural and remote communities. It provides greater opportunities for graduates interested in rural careers to maintain connections to rural communities while they complete post graduate training.

Specialist Training Placements and Support

The Specialist Training Placements and Support Program (STPS) provides registrars with exposure to a range of healthcare settings outside of traditional public teaching hospitals.

Training More Specialist Doctors in Tasmania measure

The Training More Specialist Doctors in Tasmania measure (Tasmanian Project), aims to support approved specialist Fellowship training undertaken and completed in Tasmania, and support the training and retention of specialist doctors in the Tasmanian public health system, working towards sustainability of training and supervisory posts.

The Specialist Training Program extends vocational training for specialist registrars into settings outside traditional metropolitan teaching hospitals, including regional, rural, remote and private facilities.

The National Program commenced in 2011, with further funding for all projects confirmed for 2018. The Program is overseen by the National Program Steering Committee, chaired by Associate Professor Sally McCarthy.

Initiatives supported through the National Program include:

  • Specialist Training Placements and Support (known as STP)
  • Integrated Rural Training Pipeline (IRTP) Initiative
  • Training More Specialist Doctors in Tasmania measure (The Tasmanian Project)
  • Emergency Medicine Education and Training (EMET) Program
  • Emergency Department Private Sector Clinical Supervision (EDPSCS)
  • Other Initiatives
