Diploma of Psychiatry – change of name

After guidance from the committees developing the program, and approval from the RANZCP Board, the Diploma of Psychiatry is changing its name to the Certificate of Postgraduate Training in Clinical Psychiatry (Certificate of Psychiatry). 

The College was required to change the name of the program due to the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011. All medical colleges using the protected titles of the Australian Qualifications Framework are required to make this amendment to their program names to comply with the Act by the end of this year. 

Development continues on the program, with the review and collation of feedback from the recent ‘Diploma Offering Consultation’. The RANZCP would like to thank all members who responded to the consultation via the consultation form, or via email. 

Please contact the diploma@ranzcp.org with any questions.
