WHAT IS THE NON-VOCATIONALLY REGISTERED SUPPORT PROGRAM?

Published on January 22, 2019

Here at People Medical Consulting we like spreading what we know and giving you a clear pathway to your career. We’re answering a different question each week based on queries raised via our Facebook & Instagram profiles.  

 

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION…? 

 

What is the Non-Vocationally Registered Support Program? 

 

 

WHAT’S THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROGRAM? 

The Non-Vocationally Registered Support Program is a one-off Fellowship support program delivered by ACRRM and RACGP. The program aims to provide Doctors working towards GP Fellowship with access to the highest tier Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) items throughout their training. 

 

 

HOW LONG WILL THE PROGRAM BE AVAILABLE?  

It will be available between 2019 and 2023. Doctors who do not achieve FRACGP or FACRRM and are not vocationally recognised by the 1st of July 2023, won’t be able to access higher MBS rates from this time onwards (for GP items).  

 

 

IS THE NON-VOCATIONALLY REGISTERED SUPPORT PROGRAM A 3GA PROGRAM 

No, it is not a 3GA Program. The Non-Vocationally Registered Support Program is in relation to billing through Medicare, not to meet the requirements of 19AA. 

 

 

WHERE CAN I CHECK IF I AM ELIGIBLE? 

In order to access this program, you must first be enrolled within an accredited 3GA Program and be working towards your GP Fellowship with RACGP or ACRRM. 

 

For example, if you are enrolled in the ACRRM Independent pathway you can apply. More information can be found via ACRRM websites – https://www.acrrm.org.au/training-towards-fellowship/overview-of-fellowship-training/training-pathways/acrrm-independent-pathway/non-vocationally-registered-support-program
