Rural GP Anaesthetists Peer Review Program

If you are a resident rural GP Anaesthetist you can apply for a Peer Review of Practice by one of a Panel of GPAs.

This innovative program provides SA’s resident rural GP Anaesthetists (GPAs) with a structured Peer Review that meets the requirements of a Practice Evaluation Activity; helping you to meet your professional development and evaluation requirements.

About the Program

RDWA has supported the establishment of a Peer Review Panel, which is managed by our education partners, LearnEM.

All Panel members are rural GPAs with a minimum of three years post Fellowship rural anaesthesia experience who have been trained in the peer review process by Learn EM.  RDWA funds Panel Members to attend on site at your usual hospital to undertake an observation day and provide structured feedback to you.

To request a Peer Review Program, please email gpservices@ruraldoc.com.au and we will contact you to assess your eligibility.

If eligible to take part in the Program, you will be sent a list of panel members. You can then choose three panel members, and one of those three will be chosen to conduct the peer review according to availability.

The Peer Reviewer will come to your rural location on a mutually agreed date to observe you for a full day of practice. This includes observation of theatre list management, theatre activity and a structured discussion and feedback session with the Panel Member at the end of the day.


You may be eligible for a Peer Review of Practice through the Peer Review Program if you:

  • are a resident rural GPA working in a MMM 2 – 7 location and
  • have a current agreement with at least one regional Local Heath Network (LHN) to provide anaesthesia services in a rural public hospital and
  • are providing anaesthesia services for theatre and/or emergency services in at least one SA regional LHN public hospital.

For more information on eligibility please refer to the Applicant Guidelines.


The Rural GPA Peer Review Program aims to support you, SA’s rural GP Anaesthetists:

  • To achieve and maintain rural clinical and emergency competence; and
  • Access clinical programs that support your credentialing requirements.

The Peer Review of Practice, through the Peer Review Program, meets the practice evaluation activity requirements for the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) PDP and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) CPD.
