Education facilitators - Rural Hospital Medicine Training Programme

Become an Educational Facilitator for a new registrar

Thinking back to the start of your medical career, it’s easy to remember the influential people that helped shape and guide you as a professional.

The Division of Rural Hospital Medicine is looking for volunteer educational facilitators (EF) for our Rural Hospital Medicine (RHM) registrars who're due to enter the programme in February 2022. 
About the role
Educational Facilitators act as a mentor to the registrar.

The relationship between the EF and the registrar is particularly important in the RHM programme, where doctors frequently work in relative professional isolation and where many of the clinical attachments are supervised by doctors from other scopes. As an EF, you are the person that the registrar discusses the direction of their training with, the results of various assessments and any challenges they might be facing. It is preferred that EFs have gone through the RHM training programme themselves. 
Ideally, an EF and registrar would meet four times a year to review progress with at least two of these meetings being face-to-face. Once a year, the EF will be asked to report on their registrars progress. Time spent teaching or supervising a registrar can count towards your annual CPD requirements. You can claim one CME credit per one hour session.
