Chief Psychiatrist’s Standard for Prescribed Medical Practitioners

The Chief Psychiatrist’s Standard for Prescribed Medical Practitioners has been developed to set out the requirements for senior psychiatric registrars, senior medical practitioners and international medical graduates on comparability pathways via the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP), who are able to demonstrate that they are suitably qualified and experienced, and who are supported by their employing Health Service Provider, to seek approval to apply the provisions of the Mental Health Act 2014 (MHA 2014).

This standard is issued under Section. 547 of the MHA2014. The policy must be implemented in a way that is consistent with the objects and principles of the MHA 2014.
