The Victorian Registrar Study Group is held in at the College at West Melbourne on Saturday mornings, and has been a very great success since its inception!
It was developed from Dr James Hayes’ Victorian Registars Teaching program that ran from the Northern Hospital for just on 15 years. When this program was terminated in 2013, the current program at the College was created by a group of highly esteemed educators (many of whom were students in James’ study groups), dedicated to the finest principals of FOAMed. The program is aimed as a “finishing school” for those about to sit their Fellowship exams. It is – of course – not meant to replace any local programs – but rather supplement and compliment them.
It also allows for exposure to some of the best educators from across the state of Victoria as well as the promotion of future professional links and friendships between colleagues – breaking “silos” and the like – a good thing as you may not even get to meet half your local colleagues otherwise! We have some of the best teachers/ examiners / experts in their fields from across Melbourne and Geelong for these sessions.
This year’s program will run for 18 weeks and will be even bigger and better than last year with additional eminent presenters from within and without the College. It will run from 8 April to 12 August
It is aimed at Registrars who are (or are thinking of) sitting the 2017.2 or the 2018.1 Fellowship Exams.
To register your interest in attending please contact James Hayes via email: email@example.com
Please be mindful that these sessions are run for the benefit of those about to sit the exam, if too many people show up, places may be restricted to those sitting the next exam.
