The centrepiece of our current research program is the research component of the Registrar Clinical Encounters in Training (ReCEnT) project. This is a cohort study of the in-consultation clinical and educational experience of GP registrars. It is conducted in conjunction with NSW, Victorian and Tasmanian regional training organisations and was formerly also conducted in Queensland and South Australia.
The unit also conducts research into other aspects of vocational training. Current projects are investigating pre-training and in-training predictors of registrars’ fellowship exam performance with particular focus on pre-GP term testing and on evaluations of registrar performance in clinical teaching visits.
Unit members also collaborate on research conducted in other vocational training organisations e.g. the areas of predictors of exam performance and need for remediation, and practice-level initiatives to improve registrar experience of older patient care.
We collaborate with Australian and international researchers, and are particularly keen to work with medical educators, supervisors and registrars (including academic registrars).
