This weeks feature Applications for 2020 RVTS intake Close 11 November 

Round Three applications for the 2020 intake of the Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS) are now open and close on 11 November 2019.

RVTS is a three to four-year vocational training program for medical practitioners in rural, remote and Indigenous communities throughout Australia.

The training program is delivered via structured distance education and supervision and meets the requirements for fellowship of both ACRRM and RACGP.

CEO Dr Pat Giddings said the purpose of the program is to retain doctors in their communities while they are training.

“We pride ourselves in facilitating access to quality vocational training by all doctors across Australia, irrespective of their geographical location, as well as contributing to the retention of rural and remote doctors, and improving the quality of services available to rural, remote and Indigenous communities,” he said.

“Since RVTS’ inception in 2000, more than 270 rural communities have benefitted as doctors have been able to complete their training while continuing to provide general medical services in their communities.”

Dr Giddings said the RVTS program was renowned for its high-quality training and support, with 97 per cent of its registrars last year saying they feel well supported by RVTS.

Other benefits of RVTS are that is tt is fully supervised and supported, with dedicated Registrar Training Co-ordinator (RTC), Medical Educator (ME) Mentor and Supervisor and offers high quality training, which includes weekly webinars, face-to-face workshops, exam support, clinical teaching visits and online resources and forums.

Dr Giddings said the program specifically targets doctors working where limited support is available.

“Registrars stay in their community throughout their training and are linked into a nationwide network of medical educators, supervisors and fellow registrars,” he said.

“There are significant benefits to the doctors, who get to stay in the one place while they do their training, while the community also reaps the benefit from having a skilled doctor in areas where traditionally it might be hard to retain or attract doctors.”

RVTS is fully funded by the Australian Government. Further information and the complete eligibility criteria are available at or by contacting (02) 6057 3400.
