Registrars on the ACSEP Training Program gain hands-on knowledge, skills and learnings from working within a number of placements, these are:

  • Within a medical clinic/practice
  • Within a hospital setting
  • Out in the field with a sporting team
  • Out in the field at a sporting event

Unlike other Specialist Medical Colleges where the majority of training is conducted within a hospital setting, the majority of ACSEP's training is conducted from privately owned medical clinics run by ACSEP Fellows.  For one of these clinics to be deemed as a suitable and recognised training practice for our Registrars, that practice must undergo a rigorous Accreditation Process as conducted by the ACSEP.

The Accreditation Process sees ACSEP Committee Members conducting an audit on the practice, asking questions of the practice manager and Fellows within the practice and seeks to deem the suitability of the practice as a training placement.

Our Registrars can work in clinics that are not ACSEP accredited, such as a private room within a physio clinic or with a GP at a remote practice.  For a Registrar to work within a non-Accredited Practice, they need to ensure they have suitable off-site supervision from an ACSEP Fellow.

ACSEP is always looking to increase our partnerships and have more places that our Registrars can gain exceptional learning experiences.  If you would like to become an ACSEP Accredited Training Practice - or are wanting to take on an ACSEP Registrar without Accrediting your clinic - please contact National Office for more information.
