Resources for training practices
Training posts must comply with the policies of the AGPT, RACGP, ACRRM and EV. These relate to accreditation of the practice, employment of the registrar and the teaching and supervision that is provided to the registrar while they are working in the practice. Supervisors are also required to complete professional development relevant to their role as a supervisor.
The EV Training Practice Handbook contains information for supervisors and practice about having a registrar in their practice, the program and the Professional Development program.
Registrar Employment Resources
All registrars need to be employees under the National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars (NTCER) while in a training practice. The NTCER applies to all registrars except those in community controlled health and ADF workplaces, and registrars on remediation. It is negotiated every two years in its entirety (2016, 2018, etc.) by GPRA and GPSA (General Practice Supervisors Australia). Once negotiations are complete, the finalised NTCER acts as a contractual instrument for GP registrar salaries and employment conditions. The wages within the NTCER are indexed via the Medicare Benefits Scheme (MBS).
Read the 2017 NTCER.
In addition, all practices must have a written contract between themselves and their registrar. This should include details related to payment, rosters, leave and expectations. Sample employment agreements can be found on the General Practice Registrars Australia and General Practice Supervisors Australia websites.
