The RACGP education policies and standards outline the parameters for RACGP education delivery and engagement, and aim to maintain the standard of general practice education in Australia. They are designed to ensure high-quality, effective education and safe clinical practice in workplace training. They also provide direction to education providers by detailing RACGP expectations for the delivery of education.
The RACGP education policies and standards align with the RACGP educational guiding principles and the policies, standards and requirements of the Australian Medical Council (AMC) and MBA that relate to the RACGP. As well as being directive, they are also measures of performance for the purposes of accreditation, promoting quality, and for resolving disputes in judging the adequacy of educational delivery and engagement.
The RACGP education policies and standards are informed by the Profile of the GP and support the delivery of the Curriculum.
Appendix 3 provides analysis of these guiding instruments, further information on their current state, a vision for its future, and recommendations for revision.
