Applications for the 2023 AGPT ACRRM program are now closed.
The ACRRM AGPT fellowship pathway is four years in duration. Training is undertaken in a combination of hospital and general practice community settings.
Rural pathways are available under the ACRRM AGPT pathway.
NSW and ACT offers a diverse range of training locations and experiences. There are three training regions to choose from, which are divided into subregions led by regional medical education teams. Registrars are allocated to a subregion based on their preference and score at the time of offer into the program, and undertake their GP term training within their subregion.
Under the ACRRM fellowship pathway, training time may be able to be reduced by up to 24 months.
During the ACRRM training program registrars are required to complete specific hospital rotations.
Part-time training options are available under the ACRRM fellowship pathway.
