Support for particular groups of registrars
If you’re with the rural stream, we recommend you live in the rural community where you work to help you and your family connect with your rural community.
Your program team can give you information about available support, such as funding, family support, accommodation and local champions.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander registrars
Specific individualised support includes priority placement, mentorship, cultural support, tailored supervision and practice support, and Fellowship exam preparation. Your training coordinator can help you access this support.
Culturally and linguistically diverse registrars
Support includes training in communication skills, orientation to AHPRA’s Good medical practice: A code of conduct for doctors in Australia, and individualised support as needed. Your training coordinator can help you access these types of support.
The RACGP ADF team provides tailored support to ADF registrars, who are mobile and require flexibility in their training. Additional support includes ADF-specific orientation, mentorship, training planning, transfer management, and getting recognition of overseas extended skills posts.
