Accreditation for Basic Trainees & Provisional Advanced Trainees
Please note that the Royal Australasian College of Physicians will not accredit Basic Trainees who are appointed to positions that are not employed directly through a site with a Director of Paediatric Physician Training (DPPT), currently either RCH or Monash. As of 2018 this rule will be strictly enforced, thus positions through this VPRAT system may not be accredited for Basic Trainees - please discuss this with the relevant health service prior to the interviews. For examination candidates who have provisional Advanced Training able to accredited due to the delay in FRACP examinations, you are still welcome to apply for VPRAT positions.

Applications for these positions can also be undertaken via the RCH-CCCH pathway.
