Each registrar has a supervisor appointed for the duration of their training. RVTS registrars usually work in solo practice in rural and remote locations.  The supervisor generally does not work in the same location as the registrar.  Contact with the registrar is typically provided via telephone, email or skype. 

An RVTS supervisor must have sufficient qualifications and experience to act as an appropriate supervisor or mentor.  A supervisor must:

  • be a registered medical practitioner with the Australian Health Professionals Regulation Agency
  • be a Fellow of ACRRM or RACGP
  • have experience in rural and remote general practice
  • have past or present experience in supervising / mentoring.

Clinical Teaching Visitors 

Clinical Teaching Visits (CTVs) are an essential part of the RVTS program and provide an opportunity to observe registrars working in their practices and seeing first-hand the relationships between the registrar, staff, patients, other health professionals and the community in general.

CTVs are particularly important for RVTS registrars who work in solo or isolated practices and cannot get direct feedback from practice colleagues.
