Fellowship training can, at times, be challenging both professionally and personally.  Whatever stage of training you're at, and wherever you are based, there are people and resources available to support you.

Registrar committee

The Registrar Committee represents ACRRM registrars on all College committees including the ACRRM Board and Council . If you have feedback or concerns you would like to raise through the Committee - please email: registrarchair@acrrm.org.au or private message via the registrars Facebook group.

Mentorship Program

The ACRRM Mentoring and Leadership Program is open to all registrars and senior members of the College. The program benefits both the mentor and the mentee.

Mentors provide pastoral rather than academic support, enabling them to inspire the mentee and guide them through their career.

Mentees can discuss their professional issues and career plans with an experienced Fellow who understands the pressures of the training journey.

If you are interested in taking part in the program, please contact the Member Services team via membership@acrrm.org.au or 1800 223 226.

Bullying, discrimination, and sexual harassment

The College takes a zero tolerance approach to bullying, discrimination, sexual harassment and any other inappropriate behaviours in training and practice. If you have concerns about these in your training workplace you are encouraged to seek advice and assistance.

More information is available on resolving workplace problems in the Fellowship Training Handbook.
