THIS WEEK’S QUESTION…?

Can my Supervisor Have More Than One Level 1 Supervised GP?  

 

Only If…

Your supervisor is NOT seeing their own patients

 

A supervisor who does not see their own patients while supervising GPs may supervise more than one GP who has Level 1 Supervision however; it is still up to a maximum of four GPs.  

 

What if…

Your supervisor is still seeing their own patients?

 

If they are, then they will not be able to supervise more than one Level 1 GP.

 

Your supervisor is allowed one GP on level 1 supervision and up to three other GPs providing they are levels 2, 3, or 4 supervision). Your supervisor can not supervise any more than four GPs.

 

How about…

If they currently have a GP on Level 1 but that GP should be on Level 2 by the time you start?

There is never any guarantee that a GP will be granted a supervision level increase. AHPRA will not take this into consideration when assessing your case, they will assume the GP will continue on Level 1 supervision.
