The RVTS program
The Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS) offers GP registrars an alternative pathway to Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and/or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).
RVTS is an independent, Commonwealth-funded program with its own application process and intake quota.
RVTS brings educational opportunities to General Practitioners practicing in areas where accessing mainstream training is impractical or impossible. Training is provided via distance education and remote supervision, allowing RVTS registrars to practice in some of Australia's remotest locations while training for fellowship.
The result: improved doctor retention and continuity of service for rural and remote communities.
