Each Network has one or more Directors of Physician Education (DPE) at each training site. For details, please contact the relevant Network staff.

The Physician Training Council (PTC) functions as a state-wide governance committee that “works with health partners to develop contemporary and responsive health education and training that enables a world-class workforce”. The PTC seeks to achieve this function through strategic priorities involving:

  • Governance
  • Leadership
  • Coordination
  • Medical Education and Training
  • Advocacy
  • Equity of Access

The PTC also provides an opportunity for Basic Physician Training stakeholders to be involved in the decision-making processes relevant to the delivery of the program in NSW. Issues are referred to the PTC by the members of the committee, by the Network Governance Committees, Network Directors of Training, the NSW Trainees’ Committee or by individual trainees.

The PTC has an appeals function as part of its remit. If a trainee feels disadvantaged by the arrangements within a Network, and this cannot be resolved by the Network Governance Committee, the matter can be forwarded to the NSW PTC for review.

Please contact a listed HETI representative for further information.

The PTC meets on a quarterly basis with meetings usually held in March, June, September and November of each calendar year.

Each of the Training Networks has a Network Governance or Training Committee (NGC), responsible for the delivery of Basic Physician Training within its Network. The role of each NGC is to ensure trainees receive high quality teaching and supervision across the Network, including planning, coordination and allocation in line with local services and RACP training requirements.
Network Governance Committees work closely with the PTC and the RACP to create and offer effective training opportunities. NGC membership includes Network Director of Physician Education (NDPE), Directors of Physician Education (DPE), hospital administration representatives and BPTs. Regular meetings are held throughout the year.
Please contact the relevant Education Support Officer for further information.
