FSP Training Site and Supervisor Handbook

Accreditation

Accreditation

The FSP Accreditation standards for training sites and supervisors outlines the requirements for supervisors and training sites. All sites where registrars are placed must be accredited and each registrar must nominate a supervisor who is willing to undertake accreditation (if not already accredited). If a registrar is unable to nominate a suitable supervisor, they will be supported by a remote supervision model, administered by the RACGP. FSP registrars who are remotely supervised must still work in an accredited (or interim accredited) training site.
 
Accreditation ensures a uniformly high standard of general practice training throughout Australia, providing registrars with suitable role models, experience, supervision, teaching and access to 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. 

Training sites are required to meet the RACGP Standards for general practice training. If a training site is already accredited for the AGPT program, then they will be accredited to provide training for the FSP.

Similarly, if a supervisor is already accredited to supervise AGPT registrars, they will be accredited as an FSP supervisor.
