COVID statement and FAQs

Our response to the COVID-19 pandemic and FAQs.

Our organisation is committed to communicating to all GP trainees, supervisors, practices and staff to support their health, safety and welfare; providing them with current information and keeping them up-to-date with the services we are providing as a Regional Training Organisation.

We have been providing regular updates to all our registrars, supervisors and practice managers and we ask that they regularly check emails for these communications, which detail all education and training activities, policies and procedures currently impacted by COVID-19. This information can also be found on MeL.

The colleges have both issued training information sheets/resources, see advice from the RACGP and ACRRM. 


We understand in the current COVID-19 circumstances there may be instances where you need to take leave, isolate, or undertake additional COVID responsibilities.

Please refer to the following resources to provide answers to many of the questions you may have.  If you’re unsure of your options please contact your REAPS – see our contacts here.

What are MCCC’s telehealth options if a registrar is isolating and can work virtually?

If a registrar is required to isolate and the registrar and practice agree to remote working arrangements telehealth may be an option. Find out more about telehealth via this policy TR 024 Telehealth Policy

What are MCCC’s leave options if a registrar is unable to work due to impacts of COVID-19?

If a registrar is unable to work due to COVID-19 then various leave options are available to registrars. To find out more about leave options and impacts this may have on training time click on this policy TR014 Leave from AGPT Policy and Procedure

What about exam attendance at forthcoming RACGP exams?

What if registrars are seeking to work in a COVID clinic?

 If registrars seek to work in a dedicated COVID clinic, or undertake alternative COVID-related activities and their practices agree to them doing so, this may count towards training time.  Find out more by accessing this form: TRF 028 COVID-19 Alternative Training Application Form
