During your time in the training program with CSQTC there will be a variety of ways in which you learn more about general/rural practice. Not all of these are ‘structured’ learning situations (formative assessment). In fact, we believe that your greatest source of learning is your patients, followed closely by the interactions you have with other health professionals in the training practices.
GP Registrars will successfully complete the educational (formative assessment) requirements of the AGPT by:
- meeting regularly with RTP medical education staff to develop and review learning plans - CSQTC Registrars achieve this by having a minimum of two Training Adviser Meetings per active year of training
- participating in all required educational release activities organised by CSQTC - minimum of 125 hours of peer group learning over 18 months in general practice experience/primary rural and remote training
- participating in External Clinical Teacher (ECT) visits - five during the first 18 months of general practice experience/primary rural and remote training
- participating in other educational requirements/assessment processes organised by CSQTC
- maintaining a log book or learning portfolio and submitting this at the end of training
As part of the work-based term component of AGPT, formal in-practice education (practice-based teaching) will occur.
CSQTC selected Training Practices will provide the following in-practice education in the first 12 months of general practice experience/primary rural and remote training:
- one hour of contiguous, face to face teaching over the whole 12 months
- an additional two hours of teaching during the first six months
- an additional half hour of teaching during the second six months
