INCLUSIVENESS POLICY 
Scope

To promote and support diversity amongst sexual and reproductive health trainees and specialists. 

 

Purpose

The New Zealand College of Sexual and Reproductive Health (NZCSRH) seeks to promote and support diversity. Diversity includes race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.  

Detail

The NZCSRH welcomes applications for training from any suitably qualified and experienced doctor regardless of background or beliefs.

Trainees with Disabilities

NZCSRH will consider applications from trainees with disabilities, and work with these practitioners to find solutions to facilitate their learning and/or continuing practice. NZCSRH recognises that people with disabilities may need modifications to their work/training environment or techniques in order to succeed within their chosen career. The NZCSRH recognises that a practising doctor needs to be able to:

  • make safe judgements

  • demonstrate the level of skill and knowledge required for safe practice

  • behave appropriately

  • not risk infecting patients 

  • not act in ways that adversely impact on patient safety

  • the NZCSRH acknowledges the role of the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) fitness to practice committee.
