In this months interview, I speak with the RVTS CEO and director of training, Pat Giddings. We discuss the unique training model RVTS utilises, which includes remote supervision, weekly webinars, workshops twice a year, clinical teaching visits, an online learning platform with interactive modules and online discussion forums. RVTS is unique in that it trains via distance education and remote supervision, allowing registrars to practice independently in any location throughout Australia: in rural and remote areas as well as in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services.
