Accreditation of the College
AMC and MCNZ accreditation of the RANZCP
The RANZCP is accredited by the Australian Medical Council (AMC) and the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) to deliver specialist medical education and training, and professional development programs. This accreditation is mandatory for specialist medical colleges in Australia and New Zealand.
The AMC and the MCNZ work together to review bi-national training programs, using jointly agreed standards.
The College's training program was assessed in 2022.
At their meeting on Friday 10 March 2023, the Australian Medical Council (AMC) Directors considered the report on the 2022 reaccreditation assessment of the training, education and continuing professional development programs of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists and granted accreditation for four years until 31 March 2027, subject to AMC monitoring requirements including monitoring submissions and addressing accreditation conditions by 2026.
