Despite the challenging environment, EV continues to deliver high quality GP training across our region.

On Thursday, 17 March, rural registrars acknowledged Close the Gap Day at an EV workshop. Senior Aboriginal Health Educator and Advisor Marlene Drysdale and Cultural Educator Clarisse Slater facilitated the session. The group watched a thought-provoking TED Talk “Welcome to Country?” by Jade Kennedy and completed the EV “Your Mob Foundations” module. The group reflected on the impact of history and how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people might access and experience health care. The group discussed ideas of how we, as General Practitioners and Practices, can contribute to Close the Gap by providing culturally safe healthcare. Similar workshops were held with our Metropolitan General Pathway registrars.

In light of the current number of COVID-19 cases in Victoria we have revised our plans for Semester 1.2022. It has been determined that, in order to safeguard the health and safety of our registrars and staff, EV will continue to deliver the AGPT and PEP education programs online for Semester 1.2022. The dates will remain as previously advised. We will monitor the situation for opportunities as appropriate. During Semester 1.2022 External Clinical Teaching Visits (AGPT) and Workplace Based Assessments (PEP) will also continue to be online. Scheduled accreditation visits will also be undertaken online. While this is disappointing for all concerned, EV is confident that the programs will be delivered to the highest quality possible as we continue the transition to College-led training. Should you have any questions about any aspect of our program delivery during Semester 1.2022, please contact our staff. Thank you to all our stakeholders for the work you are doing for your communities during this difficult period.
