GP Registrars in months 13 onwards in a general practice settingFrom months 13 onwards in general practice placements is a time when you are being prepared for independent practice; you will consolidate your knowledge and increase your self-directed learning. You are expected to participate in all activities available to GPs, especially continuing education activities which address identified learning needs, or in areas of special interest. Such activities will be run by your local GP Division, the RACGP, or ACRRM.
Much of your education will still occur in the Practice and face to face teaching will take place on a more ad hoc basis, as you require it, from your Trainer/Supervisor. Your Trainer/Supervisor (or delegate) will provide a minimum 25% on-site supervision. Your Trainer/Supervisor will assist you in formulating and reviewing learning plans and will provide you with regular feedback on your progress.
You will participate in at least one direct observation visit conducted by a CSQTC appointed External Clinical Teacher each 6 months. Your Trainer/Supervisor may also conduct direct observations of your patient consultations.
You will have the opportunity to attend, in your own time, optional workshops organised by CSQTC.
You will prepare for and sit the College examination during this stage of your training.
