Core Clinical Training

Your pathway to Fellowship begins with Core Clinical Training (CCT). This stage is 12 months, working in an accredited hospital, where you ideally complete terms in:

  • general surgery
  • general internal medicine
  • obstetrics and gynaecology
  • paediatrics
  • anaesthetics, and
  • emergency medicine.

The majority of CCT should be completed prior to entering Primary Rural and Remote Training. This training should provide you with sufficient clinical cases and learning opportunities to form a solid foundation to begin practising in a rural or remote context. For more information download a copy of the Fellowship Training Handbook.

Where completion of these terms is not possible, there are flexible ways to build these skills sets as you progress through training.
