Eligibility and requirements to become an RACP-approved supervisor
From 2023 Approved/Provisionally Approved Supervisors* are eligible to supervise trainees within RACP physician training programs.
If you haven't met the supervisor training requirements you're not eligible to hold training supervisory roles and formally supervise RACP trainees.
*To be an RACP-Approved Supervisor:
- All Directors of Physician/Paediatric Education (DPEs), Training Program Directors, Advanced Training (AT) Supervisors and Education Supervisors must complete SPDP 3 by end of 2022.
- All DPEs, Training Program Directors, AT Supervisors and Education Supervisors must complete (or be exempt from) SPDP 1 and 2 in line with their accreditation cycle (after 2022).
- Rotational Supervisors (RS)/Ward Service Consultants (WSC) are only required to complete SPDP 3 (non-member RS/WSC are encouraged to complete SPDP 3 but there is no requirement) by end of 2022.
After completing the SPDP 3 workshop and prior to achieving Approved status, you'll be referred to as a Provisionally Approved Supervisor.
