How to apply

The Australian General Practice Training program is your path to fellowship - intakes occur twice per year.

There are a number of pathways to achieve general practice fellowship, with the largest and most popular being the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program. In simple terms, to train as a GP through the AGPT program you need to:

  • You can apply to the AGPT program during your intern, hospital or subsequent years – next intake opens August 2022
  • Apply directly to your chosen GP college – RACGP, ACRRM or both – research to find out which college best suits your needs
  • Choose your pathway – rural, rural generalist or general pathway
  • Preference your RTO, such as MCCC, as your training provider (2023 intake only)
  • Complete assessment exams/interviews with RACGP or ACRRM and if successful;
  • Be placed in an accredited practice to commence your training
