Applying to trial an alternative process

Regional Training Organisations can apply to trial an alternative process that complies with the RACGP Standards for General Practice Training.

Stage 1: Application to trial an alternative process for general practice training

Regional Training Organisations must contact the relevant State Censor for input in the first instance when considering an application. All trial processes involving ADF or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health matters need input from the ADF Contact / Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Censors. All trial processes involving rural generalism need input from the rural censor.

The RTO is to fill out the details of the proposed process for which they are seeking approval and send to the relevant State Censor to provide a cover letter of support, as part of the application. Once the application is complete, it will need to be sent along with the censor recommendation to vtstandards@racgp.org.au.

An evaluation must be completed by the Regional Training Organisation at 6 and 12 months post implementation of approved trial process. RTO’s are to complete the evaluation form and send to the relevant State Censor with a copy sent to vtstandards@racgp.org.au.

Stage 2: Application for an extension of trial for general practice training

RTO’s seeking approval to extend an alternative process for general practice training can apply by completing the Stage 2 form and submitting to the relevant State Censor. The application, along with censor recommendation is to be sent to vtstandards@racgp.org.au a minimum of 4 weeks in advance of your planned continuation date.
