GP Registrars in the first 12 months in a general practice settingThe first 12 months of general practice experience is a time when you will be closely involved with your Trainer/Supervisor on a regular, day to day basis whilst you gain confidence and competence in general practice through education and experience.
Most of your education will occur in the Practice with regular, set aside, face to face teaching sessions occurring each week. Your Trainer/Supervisor (or delegate) will provide 80% on-site supervision in your first six months and 50% in your second six months.
Your Trainer/Supervisor will assist you in formulating and reviewing learning plans and will provide you with regular feedback on your progress.
Your patient workload will be monitored by the Practice to ensure that you are achieving the required breadth of experience and patient exposure.
You will participate in at least two direct observation visits conducted by a CSQTC appointed External Clinical Teacher over the 12 months. Your Trainer/Supervisor will also conduct direct observations of your patient consultations.
You will be released during paid work time to attend CSQTC organised educational activities, including residential workshops and regular local activities.
You are also encouraged to undertake your own self-directed learning, such as participation in activities organised by your local GP Division, the RACGP, or the ACRRM.
