Becoming a NSW Psychiatry Trainee
The Royal Australia and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) administers training nationally, delegating local training provision to the Health Education and Training Institute (HETI), whereas NSW Health administers service provision. This means that becoming a psychiatry trainee in NSW requires two (usually simultaneous) applications - One to the NSW branch of RANZCP and one to each job (see the NSW JMO Jobs website). HETI's psychiatry training networks are different from those for physician training and internship, and up-to-date lists of the networks and available rotations can be obtained from the RANZCP NSW Branch Administrative Officer - Training.
If you are already an accredited trainee in another state, there is a transfer process through the college rather than a new college application. You should contact the college for instructions specific to your situation. If you have never been an accredited trainee before, we strongly suggest you join the Psychiatry Interest Forum (PIF) to find out more about psychiatry and the profession.
