1. Purpose and Background

The Board on the recommendation of the Education and Training Committee has approved adoption of the nationally recognised commencement date for registrars in Australia and NZ as the first Monday in February.

The academic year will be defined in weeks and aligned with the AHPRA & Medical Board of Australia (MBA) definition (July 2011). This definition will be relevant for all NZ candidates to the extent it does not disadvantage NZ candidates.
