Subregion priority preferencing
GP Synergy offers subregion priority preferencing to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants, Australian Defence Force applicants and rural pathway applicants who can demonstrate a strong rural connection.
Subregion priority preferencing is automatically applied for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants and ADF applicants.
Rural pathway applicants can apply for subregion priority preference during the selection process.
Applicants need to score high enough to be offered a training place to be considered for subregion priority preferencing.
You can apply during the selection process at the time of booking an interview if you are shortlisted to GP Synergy.
In support of the rural training pipeline, rural pathway applicants can apply for subregion priority preferencing if they are able to demonstrate a strong rural connection to a rural subregion in the training region they have been shortlisted.
Demonstration of a strong rural connection may include:
- They originate from the rural area of their subregion of first preference (min. 5 years consecutive or 10 years cumulative).
- They have had previous training exposure in the rural area of the subregion (university and/or hospital).
- Their partner is currently employed in the rural area of the subregion.
In the event more subregion priority applications are received than places available within a subregion, applications will be scored and ranked.
Applications will only be considered for the rural pathway subregions within the training region you have been allocated.
Subregion priority preferencing does not guarantee you a training place. Applicants must still score high enough to be made a training offer in their own right.
