Joint Trainees with RCPA
Trainees applying for training programs supervised by the Committee for Joint College Training in Endocrinology/Chemical Pathology, Infectious Diseases/Microbiology, Haematology or Immunopathology with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) are advised to consult the PREP Requirements for Advanced Training on the RACP website.
New applicants need to obtain an application form from the RACP, in addition to the RCPA Initial Registration form. Copies of the RACP application form must be sent to both the RCPA and the RACP.
Trainees will need to pay an Initial Training Fee.
For subsequent annual registrations, only the Annual Application for Approval of Advanced Training form needs to be completed and submitted to the RACP, and then payment of the RCPA annual registration fee by submitting a Payment Authorisation form to the RCPA.
Please note that in the disciplines of Haematology and Immunopathology there are separate forms for the RACP in Australia and NZ. In both instances a copy of the form must be sent to the RCPA.
For Joint trainees only the Joint/RACP/RCPA Supervisor report is required. These are lodged with both colleges as per the submission requirements indicated on the form. If the training period includes a lab rotation then an RCPA Portfolio Summary sheet is required.
Joint College Trainees Mid-Year Supervisor reports will fulfill the requirements for the RCPA pre-exam Supervisor report due on 15 July. Annual Supervisor’s Report
Joint RACP/RCPA trainees are required to submit their Supervisor’s Report for the previous year by 31 January. In the final year of training submission of the report is required by 15 October.
