QUESTION OF THE WEEK…
Do I need Supervision on MDRAP…?
MDRAP is for non VR doctors that have varying general practice experience. Depending on a doctor’s prior general practice experience, MDRAP participants will have supervision requirements.
Doctors without prior general practice experience or with less than six months general practice experience must:
- Work under level one supervision, as defined by AHPRA, for a minimum of one month full time equivalent as determined by the RWA’s MDRAP Delegate; and
- If applicable complete and lodge a “Plan for professional development and re-entry to practice” with AHPRA (as required by the AHPRA recency of practice registration standard).
After the first month the supervisor will determine the appropriate level of supervision for the next twelve months based on the participant’s competency.
Doctors with more than six months prior general practice experience do not have to meet specific supervision requirements for the MDRAP unless required by AHPRA. However, a doctor’s previous experience will be considered when assessing suitability to work at a specific location.
In addition to the MDRAP supervision requirements, doctors must continue to maintain their medical registration and work within the conditions set by AHPRA.
