AGPT program

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.


Selection Process

The AGPT Program selection process for 2022 is jointly led by the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

For RACGP selection queries, please email [email protected] or call 1800 472 247. RACGP also provides an FAQ sheet with additional information.
