Supporting a previously neglected group of doctors will improve the safety, efficiency and efficacy of patient care
The Hospital Skills Program (HSP) is a flexible training and professional development program for New South Wales career medical officer (CMO)-equivalent medical practitioners with needs that are not met by prevocational and specialist college training programs. The 510 enrolled doctors work in a range of public health services across NSW and provide vital support to specialists in numerous clinical areas. In many situations, they practise as independent expert clinicians without specialist back-up. The HSP supports their heterogeneous skills and circumstances and recognises their contribution to service delivery in NSW public hospitals.
