Procedures Endorsement Program (PEP) resources: Category 3 procedures

The FPM Procedures Endorsement Program (PEP) curriculum defines the required learning, teaching and assessment of FPM endorsees. This guide contains all references in the curriculum, including those available through the ANZCA library.

Category 3 procedures:

  • Present the highest level of technical challenges of the endorsed procedures, and require more training to perform safely.
  • Present a higher risk of harm to patient due to level of invasiveness and potential complications.
  • Involve management of implantable devices.
  • Training requires an extended period of exposure under supervision, including basic surgical skills.
