There is a selection process to get into the Auckland regional training programme. The earliest point at which application can be made for the first year of training (SET1) is during Postgraduate Year 2 (PGY2) with entry for successful trainees in Postgraduate Year 3 (PGY3).
Having successfully completed SET1 training and assessment requirements, trainees move into SET2 without further selection. In most specialties, SET1 trainees who have not successfully completed the examination may be permitted by the specialty Board to progress to SET2, provided that other training requirements have been met.
Trainees in SET1 are appointed by the employing hospital at the level which the hospital deems appropriate. The trainees will perform clinical rotations in units, designated by the specialty in which they are selected, as providing career aligned requirements. During this period there is an increased focus on workplace competency assessment.
