Rural Generalist 1 and 2 Accreditation

In Victoria, all Intern training programs and positions must be accredited and all PGY2 programs and positions must be approved by the Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria Inc. (PMCV). 

PMCV is approved as an intern training accreditation authority by the Medical Board of Australia. The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services has authorised PMCV to review postgraduate year two posts (PGY2).

GP Training Accreditation

Eastern Victoria GP Training Limited (EVGPT) and Murray City Country Coast GP Training (MCCC) are responsible for coordinating the accreditation of GP and Rural Generalist Advanced training sites against the requirements set by RACGP and/or ACRRM. Several RG Advanced disciplines have special arrangements that include requirements from other colleges to be met. 

  • Anaesthetics posts are accredited by the Joint Consultative Committee on Anaesthetics
  • Emergency posts require the availability to undertake the Diploma of Emergency Medicine from the Australian College of Emergency Medicine 
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology posts require the ability to undertake the Advanced Diploma of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
