Q. I am currently on a 457 work visa, will MCCC write a letter of support?
A. MCCC does not accept applications from 457 Visa holders and therefore does not provide a letter of support.
Q. I am a PGY1. Should I apply to the program now or during my PGY2 year?
A. It is your choice when to apply.
If you apply in PGY1 you will complete the 12 month hospital component whilst in the AGPT program.
Some applicants wish to have more experience when applying. If you choose to apply in PGY2 or above, you will be assessed for practice readiness before being placed in a General Practice setting. Some of your hospital time may be counted through the RPL process.
Q. Do I stand a lesser chance of being selected by MCCC if I completed my hospital training outside of Victoria?
A. AGPT is a national training program. MCCC welcomes your application, regardless of where you completed your hospital training in Australia.
We will conduct interviews with shortlisted application at sites within our region. During interviews we will ask you about your intention to train in our region.
Q. When will I be able to sit my GP Fellowship exams?
A. To be eligible to undertake the AKT, KFP and OSCE examinations, AGPT Registrars must have been assessed as having completed 2 years full time equivalent active training time, including all of GPT1 and GPT2, by the date of the AKT.
Where the vocational end of term date falls up to 28 calendar days beyond the date of the AKT, an RTO exemption will be granted to allow registrars to sit the examination.
