Accreditation helps ensure a high standard of general practice training across Australia and the provision of high-quality teaching resources, supervision and facilities for registrars. All registrars training to become general practitioners in Australia must train in RACGP-accredited training sites under accredited supervision. This includes registrars training on the AGPT program, the Fellowship Support Program (FSP) and the Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS). Learn more about eligibility, standards and requirements below.

AGPT extended skills training site accreditation 


Registrars can extend their skills through a six-month placement in a general practice or other training site eg. hospital or specialty clinic. If you are interested in becoming accredited as an extended skills training site, please see our guide and discuss with your Regional Accreditation Coordinator.

Report an adverse event or critical incident


Critical incidents, adverse events, and near misses are reviewed, managed and minimised through existing general practice risk management processes, which are required for compliance with RACGP Standards for general practices. Learn more or report a critical incident or adverse event.  

Alternative training environments accreditation

Alternative models of training are developed for use in situations that require a variance from the standards for general practice training. These include remote supervision sites and special training environments, such as practices in hybrid hospital/primary care sites.

Accreditation requirements for remote supervision

Remote supervision provides registrars with the opportunity to work in remote locations where there is limited or no regular on-site supervision. Remote supervision may also be considered when onsite supervision cannot be provided by an accredited supervisor. Learn more about remote supervision accreditation.
