Can my Supervisor Have More Than One Level 1 Supervised GP?

GP Jobs and Recruitment Assistance Australia | People Medical

Yes, but only if your supervisor is NOT seeing their own patients.

A supervisor who does not see their own patients while supervising GPs may supervise more than one GP who has Level 1 Supervision however; it is still up to a maximum of four GPs. 

Please note that if your supervisor is intending on supervising more than one doctor on Level 1 supervision then a proposal needs to be supplied.

What if my supervisor is still seeing their own patients?

If they are, then they will not be able to supervise more than one Level 1 GP.

Your supervisor is allowed one GP on level 1 supervision and up to three other GPs providing they are levels 2, 3, or 4 supervision. Your supervisor cannot supervise any more than four GPs.

What if my supervisor currently has a GP on Level 1, but that GP should be on Level 2 by the time I start?

There is never any guarantee that a GP will be granted a supervision level increase. AHPRA will not take this into consideration when assessing your case, they will assume the GP will continue on Level 1 supervision.
