The Training Progress Committee has been formed to ensure the transparency of separation of measurement moments from decision making on progress.


The overall function of the national Training Progress Committee (TPC) is to monitor and evaluate the progress of Candidates in the four Programs of the Fellowship Training Program of RACMA, with particular attention being paid to formative and summative workplace activities in the Medical Management Practice Program and the Personal and Professional Leadership Development Program.
