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 Recognition with Medicare Australia.

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.

Training that keeps doctors in their communities...

The program has 2 streams of trainees:

  • The original RVTS program for doctors working in remote & rural Australia 
  • The RVTS extension for doctors working in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services
