Hello from your fellow RLOs!

As you are all aware, there is a lot happening in the coming few months – including the practice match of which the stage 1 process commences in July.

To help everyone better prepare, we are anticipating to hold a workshop at the end of June (discussions should include an update from EV’s CEO, practice match details, outer metropolitan requirements, contracts and remuneration, training time requirements) – more details to be sent out closer to the date!

Also, a friendly reminder to enroll in the RACGP exams for those anticipating to sit the written exams in July before 8pm AEST 10 June 2016.

Just highlighting again to all registrars to remember to apply for RACGP membership as of this year, it is a requirement for all registrars to be members.

In more exciting news, we are calling out to everyone for suggestions for our social event for the year – we want to know what type of event people would prefer and any ideas will be taken greatly into consideration.

We understand there have been a few changes this year, and we encourage all registrars to feed back to us on rlo@evgptraining.com.au with any questions/ concerns/ ideas!

Part-time Training

EV GP Training is changing the way part-time training is recorded for the AGPT programme. The changes will simplify the recording of part-time training making it easier to align training with semester dates and workshop schedules. Arrangements already in place for the 2016 training year will not be affected. However, any new applications will come within the new arrangements which commence in S2.2016. In summary, the new part-time training fractions will be calculated as 0.5 FTE or 0.75 FTE.  Read more

Exam Dates

The key dates for enrolment in exams are outlined below. Please ensure that your portfolio is up to date and that all requirements for your stage of training is satisfactorily completed to enable EV to confirm your enrolment otherwise you will be unable to sit the exams.
