Developing a term description

The term description document provides important information to TMOs regarding each rotation. Term supervisors should have considerable input into the content of the term description and are responsible for approving the content. In determining learning objectives, supervisors should refer to the Australian Curriculum Framework for Junior Doctors (ACFJD).

Term descriptions may be supplemented by additional information such as clinical protocols that are specifically relevant to that term.

Update a term description with ten questions

This checklist will assist term supervisors reviewing intern and PGY2+ term descriptions.

Core intern terms

In order to complete their internship and achieve general registration with the Medical Board of Australia, interns are required to undertake mandatory or core terms in emergency medical care, medicine and surgery. The requirements of these core terms are outlined in the Australian Medical Council (AMC) – intern training – guidelines for terms.
