There are a number of options to achieve general practice fellowship. However, the largest and most popular general practice training program is the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program.
In simple terms, to train as a GP through the AGPT program you need to:
- Apply to the AGPT program during your intern, hospital or subsequent years – two intakes per year
- Select your college – RACGP, ACRRM or both – research to find out which colleges best suits your needs
- Choose your pathway – rural, rural generalist or general pathway
- Preference your RTO, such as MCCC, as your training provider
- Complete assessment exams/interviews with RACGP or ACRRM and if successful;
- Be placed in an accredited practice to commence your training.

Note: due to the transition to college-led training, this information is subject to change, but is correct as at 2021.
