Apply for accreditation

Health services must apply to be accredited if they wish to provide RACP training programs.

We assess settings and Basic Training Programs to determine if they provide:

  • appropriate learning environments
  • effective system of governance and leadership for physician training
  • necessary support to trainees and educators so they can succeed
  • training that aligns with the learning objectives of the Basic Training Program Curricula

To apply, download the file for the Basic Training Program(s) your setting provides, which includes:

  • Training Provider Standards
  • Basic Training Accreditation Requirements for Adult Internal Medicine
  • Basic Training Accreditation Requirements for Paediatrics & Child Health
  • Self-Assessment Forms (AIM, AIM & PCH and PCH):
    • Part A | Setting and Basic Training program
    • Part A – Appendix 1
    • Part B | Standards
