Stability and reform
The transition to college-led training is an opportunity to create a nationally consistent, efficient fit-for-purpose training program for the next generation of GPs. We are committed to providing stability during the transition period, particularly in the context of changing community needs and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The AGPT program will still have local and regional teams managing training but, the RACGP will absorb the roles of the current Regional Training Organisations. Our national team will provide specific services and resources.
This model will enable an individual case management approach to training while ensuring contextual relevance and national consistency. A national approach to resource management will provide significant efficiencies.
We are engaging with the Department of Health and RTOs to develop their specific transition plans and arrangements and to listen to their feedback about training processes.
Our collaboration with ACRRM will ensure an integrated and efficient approach to college-led training on areas such as:
- strengthening general practice numbers
- providing a streamlined approach for registrars, supervisors and practices which are dually accredited
- providing stability across the system.
