To be awarded the DipPHRM, trainees must satisfactorily complete
- A minimum six-month 1.0FTE placement at a CCPHRM-accredited training site*
- WBAs and examinations
- Training Supervisor Reports (TSRs) every 3 calendar months
- 4 Multi-source Feedback (MSFs)
- 2 Mission Assessments (MAs)
- 4 Direct Observation of Technical Skills (DOTS)
- 3 Direct Observation of Procedural Skills (DOPS)
- 3 Case-based Discussions (CbDs)
- Task logbook via the DipPHRM Portal
- Written Examination
- Practical Examination; and
- Other requirements as prescribed by the CCPHRM.
Candidates may undertake the training on a full or part-time basis.
Trainees may undertake the DipPHRM at a minimum of 0.25FTE. Current FACEM trainees must complete the DipPHRM Training Program at minimum of 0.5FTE to ensure they are compliant with FACEM Training Program Regulation B. Trainees of other CCPHRM College training programs should check their DipPHRM enrolment complies with the relevant regulations of their parent College.
Trainees may take a maximum of three years to complete all components of the DipPHRM, regardless of FTE. This includes successfully completing both examinations.
*Some PHRM sites may only be able to provide one component of the DipPHRM Training Program, such as pre-hospital or retrieval experience, or a site may be exclusively road-based. In these cases, trainees are required to complete an additional placement at another CCPHRM-accredited site to ensure all components of the DipPHRM Training Program can be completed. Trainees may secure their additional placement before or after enrolling in the DipPHRM Training Program.
In addition, some sites may be accredited for 12-month positions as the average caseload available per registrar would not enable trainees to meet DipPHRM caseload requirements within a 6-month placement at the site.
It is the trainee’s responsibility to ensure they are aware of their training site’s DipPHRM accreditation status – pre-hospital only, retrieval only, or full accreditation - prior to enrolling in the DipPHRM.
