Placement considerations

International placement

You must undertake all training within Australia and Australian external territories (ie Ashmore and Cartier Islands, Christmas Island, Cocos [Keeling] Islands, Coral Sea Islands, Australian Antarctic Territory, Territory of Heard Island and McDonald Islands, Norfolk Island).

Pre-existing personal relationship with practice staff

A pre-existing personal relationship between a registrar and a member of staff at their training site could create a conflict of interest and lead to poor training, particularly if that person were a supervisor, practice manager or practice owner.

If you have any type of close personal or dependent relationship with a staff member at the practice where you wish to train, you and the practice must disclose this to us as a potential conflict of interest at the start of the placement process. Examples of what you need to declare are spousal/partner relationships and visa sponsorship arrangements.
