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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
For examples of approved supervision models relating to Blended/Team Supervision Models and Remote/Aboriginal Medical Services Supervision Models see Downloads below.
Accreditation Management Agreement
Under the terms of the Accreditation Management Agreement between RTOs and the RACGP, critical incidents must be reported to the RACGP. To facilitate the process, a form has been produced by the RACGP for RTOs to use if they do not have a pre-existing form or process. RTOs may also use their own paperwork instead.

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.
