I only have 2 VR supervisors onsite. Can I employ more than one supervised GP on Level 1?

GP Jobs and Recruitment Assistance Australia | People Medical

AHPRA won’t allow supervisors to supervise more than one General Practitioner on Level 1 at a time, if they are also concurrently seeing their own patients.

However, if your supervisor is willing to stop seeing their own patients during the supervised practice period, they can supervise up to 4 Limited/Provisional General Practitioners on Level 1 at a time.

Please note that if you cannot possibly provide 2 supervisors, 1 primary supervisor may oversee the IMG with the right supervision plan.

Note: The information presented above has been gathered from the AHPRA website and has been updated as of 2023-12-05.
