It is important to plan for the arrival of a new registrar so that they feel safe, welcome, and ready to start on their first day. It is a complex undertaking with many forms and templates to be completed.
GPSA has developed an easy timeline and checklist for practice managers and supervisors, Before the Registrar Starts, which outlines the key tasks that need to be performed, alongside the supporting resources, from 2-3 months before a new registrar starts through to their fourth week in-practice.
Amongst all of the paperwork, it is also prudent to prepare your practice for the arrival of new learners by establishing a comprehensively structured, best practice learning environment.
