Becoming a Teaching Practice

General Practice Training Tasmania (GPTT) has contractual obligations to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).

GPTT has an accreditation process for teaching practices to ensure standards are met and maintained for quality training of GP registrars throughout Tasmania.

To be eligible to accommodate GP registrars or prevocational doctors, your practice or clinic and GP supervisors need to be accredited with the appropriate training body being either RACGP or ACRRM, or both.

Practices can be accredited at two levels.

 

Level 1

Training practices accredited at this level can take GP registrars at all levels of GP training (GPT1, GPT2 and GPT3).

 

Level 2

Training practices accredited to level 2 are only accredited to take GP registrars in their second 12-months of GP training (GPT3)
