|Junior Workshop 2022||Senior Workshop 2022|
|Year 1-2 Registrars|
Online – July 15th
|Year 3 – 5 Registrars |
October either online or in person
The aim is to assist registrars to achieve competency to practice by the end of their registrar training by becoming:
1. competent in reporting cervical cytology
2. knowledgeable about cervical screening
3. informed about the role of a pathologist working with the NCSP in NZ
· The teaching programme aims to supplement the teaching already provided by the various registrar teaching programmes in New Zealand
· One weekend workshop day is offered annually: years 1-3 registrars on a Saturday and years 4-5 registrars on the Sunday in Auckland and all registrars on one day in Christchurch. Each registrar therefore can attend 5 training days during their 5 registrar years.
· The timing of the workshops is at the request of the registrars, to fit in with the RCPA examination timetable.
· Three talks are given on each day, alternating with three multiheader teaching sessions.
· The years 1-3 lectures rotate on a three yearly cycle and the years 4-5 lectures rotate on a two-yearly cycle, so no lectures are repeated for a registrar who proceeds through their registrar years passing Part 1 and Part 2 first time.
· Education modules are posted on the NCPTS websiet and registrars are encouraged to work through the relevant modules before the workshop. The talks are interactive where possible, particularly for seniors.
