What paperwork do I need to complete for a Non VR Doctor under Supervision…?

If you are sponsoring them for a Skilled Shortage Visa, you will also need to apply for a Health Workforce Certificate.

You can also fill out the Position Description, SPPA-30, Training Plan and sections of the AHPRA Application form for the doctor or provide them with the relevant details.

After AHPRA

Once your doctor’s AHPRA application has been approved you will need to apply for a Medicare Provider Number and potentially a 3GA program depending on their restrictions. 

If your doctor is a Permanent Resident or Citizen, they will need to apply for a 3GA program.

To do this, you will need to prepare a HW019 form and a Medicare letter of support and if applicable the relevant paperwork for a 3GA program.
