It has been a very busy year for the RACGP Expert Committee – Pre-Fellowship Education (REC–PreFE) in 2017–18. Key activities for this committee included:
- participation in an RACGP assessment workshop, hosted with ModMed, on ‘Programmatic Assessment for Learning’, with Professor Cees van der Vleuten and Professor Lambert Schuwirth
- input into development of the new Practice Experience Program, a support program for non–vocationally registered doctors to assist them in the transition to Fellowship
- expert advice into the development of Fellowship policies, such as the capping of exam attempts
- ongoing advice into the transitioning of the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program.
It has been a pleasure to chair the REC–PreFE for the last three years, and I would like to thank all of the committee members for their dedication and hard work on this expert committee. I am delighted to welcome Dr Genevieve Yates as the incoming Chair of the REC–PreFE.
