RACGP Standards for General Practice Training

The RACGP is responsible for developing and maintaining the standards for general practice training in Australia.

The RACGP Standards for general practice training (the training standards) set out the quality measure for providers of general practice training, training posts that provide the invaluable learning environments and experiences for registrars, and the supervisors who mentor, train, assess and support them.

The second edition of the training standards was endorsed by the RACGP Council in December 2015. The second edition has built on the experiences of those using the training standards to develop a more concise document that offers sufficient information and guidance for RTOs to interpret the training standards.

RTOs that would like to trial different processes that meet the training standards are encouraged to send an application to the Vocational Training Education Committee (VTEC). Examples of processes can include models of team supervision, remote supervision, ways of meeting requirements such as diversity of training to name a few. The training standards offer RTOs the opportunity to be innovative and meet registrar needs in the context of where they are practicing.

To submit a process to VTEC, complete the form and email to vtstandards@racgp.org.au

For examples of approved supervision models relating to Blended/Team Supervision Models and Remote/Aboriginal Medical Services Supervision Models see Downloads below.

RACGP Curriculum for Australian General Practice

The curriculum is a dynamic document that addresses the essential learning needs of general practitioners at every stage of their learning life. The curriculum supports medical educators to provide candidates with a solid foundation of relevant knowledge, skills and attitudes.

The curriculum has undergone a major review and is now fully competency-based. The curriculum is in the process of being uploaded.

RTO accreditation
