External Clinical Teaching Visits (ECTVs)

The External Clinical Teaching Visit (ECTV) is a key learning and workplace-based assessment (WBA) activity for GP registrars in Australian general practice. ECTVs provide the opportunity for an objective external educator to observe, and give feedback on, a session of practice in ’close-to-normal’ circumstances. ECTVs are also a useful tool to identify those registrars who require extra support. 

The supervisor plays an important role in maximising the educational utility of the ECTV. This includes interaction with the teaching visitor, interpretation of the report, and discussion with registrar.
