The College continues to offer high quality and engaging training activities for the RACMA Faculty (Censors, Supervisors, Preceptors, Trainers) on topics addressing emerging issues around supervision and Fellowship Training Program via a series of teleconferences, webinars and workshops.
RACMA Fellows, who are in these pivotal roles, are responsible for the Candidates’ formative learning, summative assessment and critical evaluation and observation of their performance in the workplace and progress through the Fellowship Training Program.
Supervisors, Preceptors, Executive Coaches, Mentors, Censors, and Jurisdictional Coordinators of Training (JCTs) provide advice, training, guidance and support for the development of the medical leadership and management competencies required of the effective medical administrator. These roles will guide training experiences and opportunities for the Candidates and identify knowledge and training gaps and any remediation avenues to address these gaps.
The Faculty webinars/tele-conferences capture some of the issues that emerge in the context of the RACMA Fellowship Training Program, which aim to better:
- Develop understanding of the Medical Leadership and Management Curriculum Competency Framework and the Assessment Framework of the Fellowship Training Program.
- Building expertise knowledge of the assessment – formative and summative – and any development in the Fellowship Training Program domains.
- Develop and enhance skills of the training Faculty in the evaluation of performance and formative / constructive feedback.
- Upskill Faculty on how to enhance their interface and engagement with RACMA Candidates.
- Enhance observation and feedback skills for Supervisors, Preceptors/Coaches and Jurisdictional Coordinators of Training (JCTs).
- Orientate non-FRACMA Supervisors to support their performance in their supervisory roles of RACMA Candidates.
The Faculty Education Program will include:
- Faculty Education/Training Webinars and Teleconferences to identify and address key FTP related, education and training issues.
- Monthly webinar tutorials on Research Training Domain (RTD) that are offered to Candidates and their Supervisors, Preceptors and JCTs for information and assessment outline on the research projects.
- PD sessions to the members of the Board of Censors around feedback and exam upskilling for Censors involved in the RACMA examination process via observation of exam footage.
Training on constructive feedback, development of the Annual Training Program, Research Training and Curriculum mapped training activities.
A Forum for discussions led by senior Faculty members or external providers in contemporary topics for RACMA Supervisors, to enhance understanding of the Candidacy training and assessment in the Fellowship Training Program.
Face to face workshops (organised by the College for RACMA Faculty). These workshops generally take place at the annual conference.
Note: The monthly teleconferences and webinars are scheduled for 12.30pm - 2pm (Melbourne time). An email with login and session details will be sent approximately one week before each session and the program for the year was distributed to all College Faculty members earlier in the year.
Recordings of previously held Faculty Training sessions are available here.
