Professional Development Program for Registrars (PDPR)
Medical registrars currently receive little specific guidance or education on how to successfully navigate the leadership responsibilities associated with the increasingly senior positions that they hold; many understandably struggle with some of the assumptions and expectations. The Professional Development Program for Registrars (PDPR) aims to improve leadership and management performance in the workplace via a sustainable, national program.
The objectives of the PDPR are to:
- promote awareness of the centrality of the registrar role in supervising and educating doctors in their prevocational years
- improve the quality of the educational supervision provided to doctors in their prevocational training, by developing registrars' teaching and supervision skills.
