Standards for general practice training 3rd edition


Understanding the training standards

Standards for general practice training 3rd edition
The RACGP Standards for general practice training is the standards against which all providers of training for Australian GPs will be measured, assessed and monitored.

It describes the expected outcomes of a quality and safe training program, and are the benchmark to be used by all training providers delivering general practice training.

These Standards balance the autonomy that training providers need to deliver the training program within the context of the community and individual, with the accountability that the profession and the wider society demands for quality and safe general practice.

This is achieved through rigorous quality and evaluation frameworks that sit behind the standards, which are administered by the RACGP, overseen by a committee of peers and endorsed by the RACGP Council.

Please note

The standards and criterion within the 3rd edition are unchanged from the 2nd edition – however guidance within some of the criterion has been amended (November 2020).
