The Academic Post policy has recently been updated.
What has changed?
Previously, Academic Registrars were required to complete the 0.5 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) Academic Post concurrently with a 0.5 FTE clinical training component.
The eligibility requirements for reducing the concurrent clinical training requirement have now been changed to allow for more flexibility for Academic Registrars. Moving forward, all registrars undertaking an Academic Post can apply to complete the concurrent clinical component of the academic term part time. The RACGP may reduce or waive the concurrent clinical requirement, to allow for the Academic Post to be undertaken part time. The revised eligibility requirements are detailed in clause 7.4 of the new policy.
