Reaccreditation

Reaccreditation

The reaccreditation cycle is generally three years; however, this period may be adjusted to align with the training site’s general practice accreditation cycle. If a site is accredited by both the RACGP and ACRRM, both colleges will align their reaccreditation dates.

Ongoing monitoring of training sites and supervisors informs the reaccreditation process. We monitor accreditation standards through the many points of contact between the RACGP and the site and supervisor, including:

  • informal liaison
  • professional development activities
  • registrar feedback
  • supervisor feedback
  • external clinical teaching visits
  • the registrar placement process.

We also consider any critical incidents relating to the performance of training sites and supervisors and relevant information shared by practice accreditation agencies (with the practice’s consent).

Reaccreditation is an opportunity for practices to review their learning environment and plan future enhancements, and to verify that all components of supervision requirements continue to be met.
