Becoming a MOET Instructor

We are looking for enthusiastic, experienced obstetricians and anaesthetists to become the first cohort of Australian MOET instructors. This role is particularly suited to those involved in training and assessment of residents and registrars, and those who provide consultant cover for delivery suite.

Becoming a MOET Instructor

The process for becoming a MOET instructor is highly prescribed. Outstanding candidates on the MOET course are identified as having instructor potential by the instructors on that course and invited to become instructors themselves. They then attend a Generic Instructor Course (GIC), which teaches how to become an instructor, based on contemporary theories of adult education. It is generic because it draws from a variety of courses, not just MOET.

After successfully completing the GIC candidates must then attend two MOET courses as an instructor candidate (IC), where they are mentored by senior instructors, before being certified as full instructors, provided the faculty is satisfied they have met the required standard. Under exceptional circumstances ICs may be certified after just one course.

Becoming a GIC Instructor

After teaching on at least four MOET courses as a full instructor MOET instructors are eligible to become GIC instructors. They apply to attend two GIC courses as a GIC instructor candidate (GIC IC), where they are mentored by senior instructors, before being certified as full instructors, provided the faculty is satisfied they have met the standard. Under exceptional circumstances instructors may be eligible after fewer than four courses and GIC ICs may be certified after just one course.
