Registrars in the rural pathway also have access to Advanced procedural skills which includes:

  • RACGP Advanced Rural Skills Training (ARST)
  • ACRRM Advanced Specialised Training (AST)

Skills Training posts in Gippsland are subject to funding and availability. All posts aim to meet the medical services needs of rural communities.

It is expected that registrars have a least three years postgraduate experience particularly for AST/ARST and can demonstrate a strong commitment to rural/remote medical practice and reside or intend to reside within the Gippsland region.

Registrars applying for an ARST (RACGP pathway registrars) must enrol in FARGP on confirmation of the post.

In addition to working towards the FRACGP/FARGP or FACRRM, registrars will also be expected to achieve an end point (Certificate level or above) for their chosen discipline.

  • Anaesthetics
  • Obstetrics (Advanced)
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Pain Management
  • Adult Internal Medicine
  • Paediatrics
  • Small Town

GPO (DRANZCOG Adv. trainees) & GPA (JCCA trainees) Statewide Workshop program

EV is currently funded by RWAV to provide a number of statewide workshops for GPO and GPA registrars. The workshops form part of the education provided for the training post and delivered in different locations throughout rural Victoria enhancing skill development, consolidation, mentoring and collegiately amongst trainees.

Consolidation of Skills posts (DRANZCOG Adv. & GPA Registrars)

Following the successful completion of either the Obstetrics DRANZCOG Adv. or GP Anaesthetics (JCCA) 12 month training post, registrars will be expected to complete a ‘Consolidation of skills’ post (CoS) the following year. This is undertaken as part of GP training time over a 12 month period (approx 0.5 FTE and 0.5 general practice) providing registrars the opportunity to consolidate their skills in the hospital they trained in and an appropriately matched general practice in their chosen area of skill.
