Accreditation to train GP Registrars

ACRRM and RACGP Accrediation

Practices can be choose to be accredited by one, or both, of the Colleges to train GP registrars.

RACGP Accreditation

Training Practices accredited by the RACGP for GP training are accredited at one of two levels.
  • Level 1:    Training Practices accredited at this level can host Doctors in Training at all levels of GP training.  GP registrars in their first two GP training terms (Basic and Advanced terms) require additional supervision, education and support from their GP supervisor and this is reflected in the criteria for these Training Practices.
  • Level 2:    Training Practices accredited at this level are only accredited to host Doctors in Training in their third GP training term and beyond (Subsequent term, Extended Skills and Awaiting Fellowship).

Please read the RACGP Standards for Trainers and Training Posts for full details of the standards to be met by GPs and Practices to become involved in General Practice training.

More information is available on the RACGP website.
