Accreditation to train GP Registrars
RACGP and ACRRM 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 take GP Registrars at all levels of GP training. GP Registrars in their first 12 months of GP training (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 to Level 2 are only accredited to take GP Registrars in their second 12 months of GP training (Subsequent term).
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.
