The RVTS program is designed to accommodate the circumstances of remote practice and provide the best possible educational experience. Training is provided via distance education and supervision is facilitated remotely. Program delivery is flexible and designed to meet a participant’s individual needs. Education is delivered via:
- Live Weekly Webinars: Registrars participate in weekly, 60-90-minute education sessions via webinar unsing the Citrix Gototraining platform.
- Face-to-Face Workshops: Twice a year registrars meet at a central location for an intensive, five-day education workshop that covers topics best learnt face-to-face. There are opportunities for networking and socialising and families can travel with registrars.
- Clinical Teaching Visits: An RVTS supervisor, medical educator or experienced rural practitioner visits the registrar to sit in on consultations and provide feedback.
- Remote Supervision: Each registrar is allocated a supervisor who acts as a mentor, providing educational advice.
