Teaching and Learning
The Teaching and Learning sub-committee is chaired by Dr Rob Kennedy, under the Education Committee chaired by Dr Craig Schramm.
The College training programme will facilitate supervised progression through defined competencies in aerospace medicine, with regular summative and formative assessments over a four year period.
The training programme is flexible, and tailored to accommodate individuals’ circumstances. It is expected that a Registrar working in a setting with a reasonable exposure to aerospace medicine could meet the competencies and assessments from any location in Australasia.
The Assessment sub-committee works under the direction of the Education Committee.
Assessment of competence is continuous throughout training, and is based on satisfactory performance in the following:
Candidates granted Advanced Trainee status may have to complete selected assessments and/or the exit examination, determined on a case by case basis.
For more information about assessment, please refer to the College Training Manual and the Curriculum of Training.
