The AGPT program
The best journey to fellowship as a GP is on the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program. The AGPT program is offered through two GP training colleges, the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).
The ACRRM training pathway focuses on rural and remote medicine. The program is designed to expose registrars to a diverse range of health issues to prepare them for the challenges of rural and remote health care.
RACGP registrars have the option to train on the general or rural pathway. The RACGP pathway is designed to equip registrars with the skills and knowledge they need to practise as a GP in both metropolitan and rural locations.
