Variation to training time

Are you wanting to alter your hours of work?

Both program leave and/or variations to training time will affect your overall training time and possibly when you can sit exams.

Accurate records are required at ALL levels of training.

When relevant, please complete the appropriate forms and email to the relevant address.

Additional leave

Are you taking additional leave that exceeds annual and personal leave allocations, as per the NCTER and AGPT leave policy? This is known as program leave.

Change to training time requirements

MCCC following ongoing discussions with the RACGP and in line with the NTCER, will be enforcing the following as definitions of training:

Full time training requires full time employment of 38 hours per week worked over at least four days*, averaged over a four week period. It will encompass patient contact time, education release time, in practice teaching time and administration time (where applicable). Anything less than 38 hours will be considered part time training.

Minimum part time training is 14.5 hours per week employment over a minimum of two days*. This will encompass patient contact time, education release time, in practice teaching time and administration time (where applicable).

Please note that if a registrar is working across two practices then they must meet the minimum 14.5 hour of employment at each location.

Should you have any queries, please contact your MCCC REAPS directly or call: 1300 622 247

*each session must not be less than three consecutive hours.
