ACRRM - Core Clinical Training (CCT)
The hospital year is an essential component of GP training in Australia. It means that all registered General Practitioners in Australia will have completed a minimum of two years (intern and post intern or PGY1 and PGY2) in an accredited teaching hospital.
The purpose of the hospital experience is to hone clinical skills across a range of disciplines in an environment where you can experience a focussed case load with supervision and teaching by relevant specialists. These generic and specific skills are then taken forward to the community setting in GP placements later in training. Major teaching hospitals are a particularly rich resource for learning and refining these key clinical skills.
For GP Registrars currently enrolled with CSQTC who are undertaking their hospital year, please see the Quick Links section, where you will find links to speedy information about Information for Hospital Based GP Registrars that will assist you with your current needs.
