Australian General Practice Training (AGPT)
How to become a GP
So how do you become a GP? The most common way is by training in the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program.
The AGPT program is an Australian Government funded vocational training program for doctors who want to specialise as general practitioners.
The program is managed by the Department of Health and is delivered by a national network of Regional Training Organisations (RTOs), such as GP Synergy. GP Synergy delivers the AGPT program across the three NSW/ACT training regions – Western NSW, North Eastern NSW and Lower Eastern NSW.
