FSP Accreditation Standards for Training Sites and Supervisors
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) is recognised by the Australian Medical Council (AMC) and the general practice profession as the body responsible for developing and maintaining the standards of training for general practice in Australia. The Australian Government has adopted Fellowship of the RACGP (FRACGP) as the standard for practising as an unsupervised general practitioner (GP) in Australia.
The RACGP is responsible for delivering and managing the education, training, assessment and professional development programs to facilitate the training of safe and competent specialists in general practice to ensure the highest standards of healthcare. The RACGP Standards for general practice training were developed to outline requirements for general practice education and training, supervisors and training sites. The training standards are outcomes-based and focus on the quality of the outcomes for registrars and patients rather than on the means by which these will be achieved. Interpretation of the training standards as they apply to supervisors and training sites was previously undertaken by training organisations.
This document was developed to guide the accreditation of training sites and supervisors delivering the Fellowship Support Program (FSP). It provides detailed guidance and expectations to ensure that accreditation supports consistent high-quality training. It also encourages continuous quality improvement through ambitious goals. Processes for accreditation and reaccreditation for training sites and supervisors are also outlined.
The RACGP maps its standards to the AMC Standards for assessment and accreditation of specialist medical programs and professional development programs to ensure training site and supervisor accreditation processes are formally evaluated in our accreditation processes and meet AMC requirements.
