FSP Accreditation Standards for Training Sites and Supervisors

Objective of RACGP site and supervisor accreditation

Objective of RACGP site and supervisor accreditation

The Fellowship Support Program (FSP) is delivered primarily in general practices where a registrar may already be working or commencing new employment. FSP registrars must work in accredited training sites with accredited supervisors.  

The RACGP ensures that the training standards are met by accrediting supervisors and training sites in all training settings. This includes general practices and sites with special considerations, such as Aboriginal Medical Services and remote locations. We work with other specialist medical colleges and graduate medical councils to partially accredit hospital placements used for advanced rural skills training (ARST) for those registrars completing rural generalist training.

Accreditation aims to ensure a uniformly high standard of general practice training throughout Australia, providing registrars with suitable role models, experience, supervision and teaching, and access to suitable resources and facilities. The RACGP sees the process of accreditation of supervisors and training sites as a collaborative one – working with all concerned to continually improve the training of our future GPs.
