MBA’s Expert Advisory Group on revalidation reports findings

The Medical Board of Australia (MBA) has released the Report of the Expert Advisory Group on revalidation. You may have seen some press coverage on this already. The Report and a Statement on “Building a Professional Performance Framework” are all accessible on the Board’s website.

The findings were presented to all Colleges on Tuesday 28 November. In attendance were our President and our Chair of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee, Dr Anne Lewis. The implications are several. Next, the College will aim to produce a Discussion Paper with questions that we would appreciate the members views upon.

At the next MBA consultation event on 15 February 2018, Colleges are to relay to the MBA, issues their College may be facing and any operational challenges in implementing this. We would aim to attend this armed with your feedback. Keep watch for further communication and the Discussion Paper.
