The Victorian Branch of the Australian Medical Association has been contracted to provide AMA4 training for the government. Nigel Strauss and myself have been the trainers of the GEPIC. We have just been informed that “due to the overwhelming number of psychiatrists that have completed the GEPIC module in recent years, the Government Authorities have decided not to include Psychiatry modules as part of this year’s AMA4 Guides Training program. At this stage the program schedule beyond 2013 has not been confirmed.”
I hear there are similar problems getting training in the PIRS in NSW. At this satage, if you have not been accredited you have to wait until 2014.
