Mentoring Program

The MEDSAC mentoring programme for doctors helps support your progress towards accreditation after initial training.

When you join the programme you are paired with an experienced MEDSAC-accredited doctor, who will review your next four cases and offer feedback, advice and support.

You should then be ready to apply for initial accreditation, - which will give you the following benefits:

  • It is evidence of your “expert” status in the field of sexual assault forensic examinations.
  • GPs who apply for accreditation or reaccreditation can claim 10 points for this process, which counts as a Continuous Quality Improvement Activity (audit). Or, for those who are RACP MyCPD participants, this activity qualifies for up to three credits per hour (so keep a record of the number of hours spent completing your application).
  • MEDSAC Accreditation is a requirement to be able to work under the Sexual Abuse Assessment and Treatment Service (SAATS) Contract.

To be eligible to join the Mentoring Programme you need to:

  1. Have done two supervised cases
  2. Be working in a SAAT service

When you have completed two supervised cases, contact the office to arrange to join the programme.
