About this Network
- The Emergency Medicine Training Networks were established in 2009 to facilitate high quality patient care and provide access to high quality education and training for trainees.
- These Networks are based in New South Wales (NSW), establishing co-operation between affiliated “sister” training hospitals.
- The Emergency Medicine State Training Council (EMSTC) provides oversight of the network training program in NSW.
Specific functions of training networks include:
- Ensuring that all trainees in the network have equitable access to learning opportunities – both formal and informal.
- Ensuring that all trainees are supervised and supported by more senior staff at a level consistent with their skills and experience.
- The development and maintenance of a network training program that addresses College training requirements.
- Development and implementation of local training policies that are relevant to training such as an orientation programme, clinical skills training and review, appropriate rostering and access to supervision, clinical handovers, formal and informal feedback and assessment of trainees (consistent with college training guidelines where applicable)
- Oversight of allocation of training rotations to optimise the delivery of postgraduate training at the sites within the network.
- Monitoring and reporting on indicators of training quality and outcome e.g. Recruitment and workforce data, trainee term evaluations, College exam result.
- Evaluation of each training rotation by trainees.
