Performance and progression

The performance and progression of each registrar is discussed regularly by the supervisor, ME, training coordinator and other program team members. These discussions serve several purposes:

  • planning for a registrar’s learning needs
  • tracking progression and development of competency
  • early identification of registrars who need support.

These discussions may include the registrar, particularly when there is assessment feedback to be given and to plan learning goals.

The RACGP’s Progression Review Committee (PRC) oversees the progression of all trainees. Its role is to provide support and/or advice on recommendations made by the regional teams regarding educational support, remediation, and supervision requirements, as well as ongoing review.

What does this mean for me?

The progress of all registrars is overseen by the PRC for quality assurance purposes. If a regional team or supervisor raises concerns about a registrar for any reason, they may seek advice from the PRC.

Advice or recommendations from the PRC will be shared with you, generally through your ME.

This process provides an excellent opportunity for you to develop a plan to address issues, such as training or learning needs, to make sure you’re receiving the support you need to continue to progress through training.

If your progress is not considered to be at the expected standard, a focussed learning intervention (FLI) will be suggested. An FLI outlines a set of activities to address areas of performance that need improving. If you need intensive assistance, a remediation term will be discussed. During a remediation term, program time is stopped to allow focus on a particular area of competency improvement. If a remediation term is proposed, completion is mandatory and self-funded.
