QUESTION OF THE WEEK…
What happens if my clinic loses DPA status and I am restricted by 19AA…?
It entirely depends on what 3GA program you are on.
MDRAP and PEP have told us that if a clinic loses DPA status they will allow their trainees to continue working in that clinic.
DPA status is not a requirement for ACRRM Independent Pathway or RVTS, however if you are also restricted by 19AB you will be granted a General Exemption automatically to continue working at that clinic if it loses DPA status.
Similarly, for the AGPT rural pathway you will be granted a temporary General Exemption to continue working at that clinic if it loses DPA status.
