Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS)

The Remote Vocational Training Scheme provides a vocational training program for medical practitioners in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and remote and isolated communities throughout Australia.

The training provided meets the requirements for Fellowship of both ACRRM and RACGP and by extension, Vocational Registration with Medicare Australia and Specialist Registration in the specialty for General Practice with AHPRA.

RVTS supervises and supports its registrars via distance education and remote supervision, allowing them to practice independently in any location throughout Australia. The four year program allows doctors to access vocational training while they continue to provide general medical services to their community.

The program has 2 streams of trainees:

  • The Remote Stream for doctors working in remote & rural Australia 
  • The AMS Stream for doctors working in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services

Round 1 Applications Now Open

Applications for both the Remote Stream and the AMS Stream for training commencing February 2017 are now open and will close on 17 July. Go to our For Applicants page for further information including Applicant Guides.
