In December 2012, the Board started a conversation about revalidation and has since consulted with the profession and the community.
The Board is considering how best to ensure medical practitioners maintain and enhance their professional skills and knowledge and remain fit to practise medicine. It is seeking expert advice, as well as feedback from the profession and the community, about the best way to do this in a way that is practical, effective and tailored to the Australian healthcare environment.
Consultation is an important part of the Board’s engagement with members of the medical profession, members of the public and other stakeholders. The feedback provided via consultation is greatly valued, and informs the Board’s development of important documents.
There is a consultation on revalidation currently open for your feedback, which you can view on the current consultations page.
