The road to rural generalism

There are a number of ways to become a rural generalist (RG).

We offer RG pathways through both RACGP and ACRRM. When you apply to the AGPT program, you can choose RG as an option with RACGP. All ACRRM trainees are rural generalists.

You can also register your interest in being a rural generalist with the Victorian Rural Generalist Program, before joining the AGPT. Find out more about applying here.

The most supported pathway

Rural generalism provides GP trainees with a supportive, end-to-end training pathway. Once qualified, a rural generalist will provide primary care to patients in GP clinics, together with advanced care in their chosen specialty and may also work in a Victorian rural or regional health service as a Visiting Medical Practitioner.
