How will training offers and subregion allocations be determined?
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 the subregion 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 score (from stage 2 assessments) up to the number of training places available.
Please note: Not all training regions and subregions may be available in second intake.
Further about our subregions and training location requirements is outlined in GP Synergy Applicant Pack, available upon signing up to our mailing list (opposite).
When will I know if I have been made an offer?
Applicants will be advised if they have been successful in being made an offer by 5pm AEST 11 December 2017.
If I missed out in first intake, can I participate in second intake?
Applicants who missed out on a training place in the first intake can participate in second intake. They do not need to re-apply or re-site the CAAKT assessment. They will however be required to participate in a Multi-Mini Interview (MMI) with the Regional Training Organisation (RTO) if they are successful in being shortlisted.
Please note: The RACGP has advised that applicants are unable to preference the same pathway/training region combination that they have interviewed at already.
Important note about 2018 training plans – GP terms and second intake time frames
Due to the timeframes of second intake, and the logistics involved with securing Medicare provider numbers and assessing doctors for GP term eligibility, applicants are strongly encouraged to have suitable hospital employment lined up for the first six months of 2018.
Furthermore, applicants should review their own GP term readiness by reviewing the RACGP mandatory hospital rotation requirements. It is the registrar’s responsibility to ensure they have suitable employment for the first half of 2018.
Please note: The GP training program cannot be deferred or started on leave. The exception is maternity or sick leave.
