Training practicesbarrygittins_081

A training practice is a general practice that has an established capacity and commitment to support the training of GP registrars and is often also involved with undergraduate students. Training practices are accredited based upon the requirements of the two GP colleges – RACGP and ACRRM. Most importantly, training practice staff ensure that registrars are well supervised in their delivery of safe and effective health care.Registrars are placed with accredited practices according to preferences of both parties.

EV GP Training has a number of accredited practices that host registrars for GP training.  The number of places available changes frequently and is subject to a number of variables outside our control.  Even though a registrar may be deemed practice ready, they may not be offered a placement in general practice and will therefore have to consider taking a hospital-based position such as hospital training, extended or advanced skills training.

There are no guarantees that a registrar will be offered a placement in general practice upon commencement of training due to limited availability of placements.  Registrars should refer to the ED-Org-8.1 Registrar Selection policy
