This notice is to advise that the RACGP has developed a guide related to the effects various addenda have on a medical practitioner at various stages in their journey to Fellowship and beyond.
The new Implications of restrictions, conditions and other addenda on medical registration guide is available for reference now.
Rationale for the document
At times, restrictions, conditions, limitations, reprimands, supervision requirements, tribunal outcomes, suspensions, undertakings and/or any other addenda may be placed on a doctor’s registration which affects their eligibility to train as a general practitioner (GP), to be admitted to Fellowship of the RACGP and, for existing Fellows, to be a supervisor.
The purpose of this guide is to outline the implications of these addenda.
Implications of the document
This document provides medical practitioners with information on how addenda on their medical registration may affect their ability to:
- train as a GP
- be admitted to Fellowship of the RACGP
- be a supervisor, examiner or medical educator.
Change to recognition of experience gained under direct (level 1) supervision from 1 January 2023
From 1 January 2023, general practice experience gained while subject to direct (level 1) supervision cannot be counted towards general practice experience time under the Assessment of General Practice Experience Policy. This time will no longer contribute to exam eligibility or Fellowship requirements. Time assessed in previous GPE assessments will continue to be accepted. General Practice Experience assessment applications received before 1 January 2023 will be able to have this time included in their assessment of general practice experience. Applications received after 1 January 2023 will not have this time included in their general practice experience assessment.
