Digital Health in Medicine Capability Framework Consultation

5 May, 2021

The Australian Medical Council (AMC) and Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) are conducting a consultation with peak bodies across the medical education continuum and other stakeholders of health about a new proposed framework for Building a Digitally Capable Medical Workforce. This framework aligns closely with the National Digital Workforce and Education Roadmap which was launched by the Agency in 2020.

In this consultation, we seek your feedback on the principles underpinning good practice design in capability frameworks in medical education. We also provide you with the opportunity to give feedback on a proposed evidence based framework for digital health capabilities in medicine.
