Benefits of a remote supervision training term

  • Receive Flexible Fund placement incentives to support your training term/relocation
  • Benefit from the breadth and depth of clinical experiences presented in rural and remote settings 
  • Demonstrate flexibility, curiosity and a sense of adventure to prospective future employers 
  • Experience diverse primary health contexts across Australia 
  • Receive greater supervisor engagement than in a traditional training term 
  • Make a positive impact in underserved communities. 


Several models of remote supervision may be applied to a remote training program depending on the context of the training site and the availability of the remote supervisor. The different models allow the training site and the RACGP the flexibility to ensure the model of remote supervision is appropriate for the local context and is sustainable for the location.

Possible models of remote supervision include:
 

Model 

Description 

Remote supervision 

Registrar works in relative isolation and is supervised by a remote supervisor who lives anywhere in Australia. 

Blended supervision 

Registrar and remote supervisor work in the same location for a period of time throughout placement, with periods of remote supervision. 

Satellite supervision 

 

Registrar is supervised by a remote supervisor in a neighbouring or nearby town, who is available for some face-to-face meetings and supervision. 

Group supervision  

 

Multiple remote supervisors support multiple registrars remotely and rotate their days of support. 

  • Nationally consistent payments (NCP): registrars will receive NCP payments, set according to geographical remoteness as per the MMM.  

  • Flex Funds: In addition to NCP, registrars may be eligible for further Flex Funds financial support to assist with the additional cost associated with living and training in an area of workforce need.
