Directors of Clinical Training
The position of the Director of Clinical Training (DCT) is seen as a key component in the training structure of trainee medical officers (TMOs) and requires a senior clinician with special skills as a teacher, innovator, adviser and diplomat.
DCTs have the responsibility of organising and supervising the training of TMOs in their hospitals. The precise model of DCTs does vary from State to State but their principal role and function are in essence similar and form part of the guidelines that the Australian Medical Council suggests for these positions.
