How to apply
2023 AGPT intake applications
2023 AGPT intake applications are now closed. Final Round applications will reopen on Monday 8 August, 2022.
The Australian General Practice is the most popular program for achieving fellowship as a general practitioner. The training program is funded by the Australian Government for qualified doctors who want to specialise as general practitioners.
There are two intakes per year and you need to apply for the GP college of your choice (or both).
The program is based on an apprenticeship model and as a GP trainee you will be working as a GP in an accredited training facility, getting paid while you are training towards fellowship. Training takes place in a range of hospital and general practice settings in rural, regional and metropolitan areas.
During your training period you will get the support you need from our highly experienced medical educators and GP supervisors.
AGPT Information Webinars
GPTT will be hosting AGPT 2023 intake webinars which provide applicants the chance to hear from directly from GPTT Medical Education staff that will provide details about their training and have your questions answered.
