Seeking Fellows to become Vocational Practice Assessment Assessor for the Medical Council of New Zealand

We are inviting Fellows to express their interest in becoming a vocational practice assessment (VPA) assessor for the Medical Council of New Zealand (Council). Assessors are nominated by the RANZCO.

VPAs assess an international medical graduate’s (IMG’s) competence at the level of a New Zealand-trained vocationally-registered doctor. Two RANZCO-nominated assessors carry out VPAs. The VPA is a one-day onsite visit that consists of an opening/closing interview, records review, colleague interviews, observation of consultations and procedures, and a a case-based oral assessment. Following the VPA, the assessors write a report which advises Council whether the doctor is practising at the required standard of a NZ-trained vocationally-registered ophthalmologist.

Preparation for a VPA consists of reading briefing material and attending a briefing Zoom meeting with Council’s medical adviser and staff (approximately 4-6 hours). The onsite visit is usually around 8 hours, and preparing the report usually takes around 4-6 hours. Usually, assessors travel to the VPA location the night before the VPA. Council makes travel and accommodation arrangements, and pays an hourly fee. Training is provided.

Assessors should be familiar with the FRANZCO standard. Other roles involving competence assessment (training program educator, examiner, supervisor, head of department, etc.) are likely to involve comparable skills.

For further information, please contact Bianca (RANZCO) at img@ranzco.edu or Lisa (Council) at Lrussell@mcnz.org.nz. To express your interest, please contact Lisa.
