MCCC Research Opportunity
MCCC is seeking interested people with five years of experience as a Supervisor to be involved in a research project that will explore ‘protected teaching time’ between Supervisors and Registrars in general practice training. As part of an ACRRM funded Education Research Grant, this valuable area of investigation will aim to explore how GP supervisors understand general practice and combine this knowledge with pedagogical strategies to deliver instruction to vocational trainees.
Invitation – join the Research Committee
Supervisors are invited to join the MCCC Research Committee as a network for developing skills or sharing experience.
2018 meeting dates
The Committee will meet via teleconference quarterly from 2-4pm on these dates:
- Tuesday 20 February
- Tuesday 22 May
- Tuesday 21 Aug
- Tuesday 13 Nov
Those interested in joining can contact Research Portfolio Manager, Dr Duncan Howard: Duncan.Howard@mccc.com.au
MCCC would like to remind Supervisors that they are required to complete two Supervisor Feedback Reports per semester per Registrar within their Practice. These are to be lodged via Pivotal, and are an important indicator of your Registrar’s progression of training.
For further information regarding Feedback requirements please contact the Training Support Officer in your region.
MCCC encourages Practices to verify RCTI data for Registrars within terms GPT1-GPT3 and PRRT1-PRRT3 in order to receive timely payments for teaching activities conducted at the post. If you are experiencing any difficulties lodging RCTIs via Pivotal, MCCC Training Support Officers in each region are available to provide assistance.
