In addition specific sessions for clinical examination practice are organized jointly by Orange and Dubbo to provide examination practice for OCI and OSCE exams as trainees approach this.
At Bloomfield the local training scheme has grown in the last five years. We currently have RANZCP accredited terms in Inpatient Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (basic and advanced trainees (Dr Susan Blinkhorn) ; Liaison psychiatry (Dr Fran Orr); Old Age Psychiatry (Dr Carolyn Jones); Community and Mental Health Emergency Centre (Dr Jarret Johnston); Forensic Rehabilitation (Dr Nick Burns); Acute Adult Inpatient psychiatry (Dr Martyn Patfield).
We have both locally based trainees and trainees on secondment for 6 months or more (accommodation provided). At Bloomfield,psychiatrists, CMOs and trainees work together in a small collegiate service. Overtime is rostered approximately one night or weekend day in ten. The Orange Base Hospital was rebuilt and opened in 2011 and is now collocated with the psychiatric units providing good medical back up.
