Training sites must apply to the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) to have their site accredited. Further information can be found at RACP site accreditation.

Process for sites requesting an increase of existing Advanced Trainee numbers, or sites requiring reassessment after five years of accreditation:

  1. Review the RACP Criteria for Accreditation of Geriatric Training Settings

  2. Complete the RACP Geriatric Medicine Survey to Accredit Advanced Training Settings

  3. Email the completed survey to the Geriatric Medicine Education Officer: geriatrics@racp.edu.au

  4. Based on the information contained in the survey, conditional accreditation may be granted until a site visit can be performed.

  5. Two members of the Advanced Trainee Committee (ATC) organise to visit the site. Their report and recommendations are forwarded for consideration by the ATC.

  6. The ATC determine the site’s accreditation status based on the report and recommendations.

  7. Accreditation is reviewed at five year intervals.
