RVTS training update –
June 2023

by Dr Ronda Gurney, RVTS Director of Training

As we approach the midpoint of the year, it's a good time to look back on the training activities that have taken place so far in 2023!

Dr Ronda Gurney, RVTS Director of Training.

In March, we delivered our Sydney workshop (pictured below) which focused on procedural skills that are particularly relevant in remote, rural and First Nations healthcare settings.

Eighty-five registrars participated in the hands-on training and interactive sessions, supported by RVTS supervisors, medical educators, cultural educators, cultural mentors and program support staff. Feedback from our registrars attests to the value of these learning experiences which not only boost their confidence and increase their skills, but also provide valued networking opportunities with peers who understand the challenges of rural, remote and AMS practice.

Building on the success of the Sydney workshop, our next will be held in Brisbane from 18-22 September.

Our webinar program has already delivered 87 sessions this year, covering core curriculum topics – that’s an average of six webinars every week! Recognising the importance of exam preparation, RVTS also offers four exam prep webinars per week to assist our registrars in getting ready for the different exam segments.

As always, we are proud of the achievements of our registrars and the positive impact they are making in their communities. Thank you for the important work you are doing!

We would also like to express gratitude to our amazing group of RVTS supervisors, who provide invaluable support to our registrars on their journey towards Fellowship. Many of our current supervisors are former RVTS registrars, and we are thrilled to have Alumni members joining RVTS in different capacities to support and inspire future cohorts.

We look forward to the continued achievements and positive impact we will collectively make throughout the rest of 2023 and beyond.
