Within each NSW/ACT training region (Western NSW, North Eastern NSW and Lower Eastern NSW) there are different subregions. Applicants who are successful in being offered a training place will be allocated to a subregion on offer, and will be required to complete their GP term training within this subregion.
Training offers, and subregion allocation, will be made by on the basis of their stage 2 assessment MMI score up to the number of training places available. Subregion priority preferencing is available to some applicants.
Further about our subregions and training location requirements is outlined in the GP Synergy Applicant Pack.
As each training region may be shortlisted more applicants than there are places available, not all applicants may receive an offer.
Unsuccessful candidates may invited to participate in a subsequent round of selection, however it is important to note there is no guarantee of subsequent rounds, and if there are, the number and location of training places may be limited.
Third intake applicants will be advised if they have been successful in being made an offer by 5.00pm 22 January 2019.
