Sub-Specialist Certificate Training Networks

Networks for Sub-Specialty Certificate Psychiatry Training in NSW are state-wide. Each network has a State Director of Advanced Training (DoAT) who is responsible for the coordination of training. The DoAT works closely with the RANZCP and the Psychiatry Training networks to ensure the best delivery of the curriculum for its trainees.

Joining a Sub-Specialist Certificate Training Network

Most trainees will discuss their Stage 3 Training options with their local supervisors during their final year of Stage 2 Training. Contact details for the DoATs can be found here.
