The Special Interest Group for Engineering General Practitioners provides us with a mechanism to share and learn from each other, tackle challenges together and influence advocacy in the interest of general practice engineers.
Be part of a growing network of general practice engineers.
What we do
- Promote general practice engineering
- Provide a forum for general practitioners to share experiences and discuss current challenges and opportunities
- Provide relevant professional development for general practice engineers, assessors, educators and others to support the field
- Advocate for the interests of general practice engineers with the public and key stakeholders such as MBIE, Territorial Authorities, educators and others
Our objectives are:
- To cast the net and encourage as many engineers, of all types, who may define themselves as Generalists rather than Specialists, to join the group and share experiences.
- To work towards an Engineering General Practice quality mark with Engineering New Zealand.
- To establish what Skills should be defined as Engineering General Practice and what should be defined as Specialist.
- To promote learning of the wide range of EGP skills.
- To promote discussion/ learning/coffee groups for Engineers who work in these Practice areas.
- To promote volunteer “Colleague Reviews” (not called Peer Review but similar) between members.
- To make organisations such as Engineering New Zealand, Councils, MBIE, etc aware of our objectives.
- To raise the standard of work presented to Councils by Engineers.
- To promote the removal of the requirement of each Council in NZ to carry out their own assessment of Engineers.
- Promotion of General Practice engineering
- Professional development specific to our needs
- Encourage the Engineering New Zealand assessment team to recognize ‘good general practice’.
