Train in a specialty area of your choice
From Aboriginal health to obstetrics and gynaecology, the choice is yours. With these skills, you can better serve the WA community.
When you train with the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM), you will undertake the Advanced Specialised Training (AST) term over 12 months in which you will train in a specific discipline. This term can be undertaken following your hospital year and before commencing in community GP. It can also be undertaken following your community GP training time. Visit the ACRRM website to learn more.
When you train with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), you will undertake an additional six months of training to your 18 months of GP training. This is called Extended Skills. You can either choose to further develop your skills and knowledge in general practice or opt to work in a specialty, also known as Non-GP Extended Skills. Visit the RACGP website to learn more.
The Fellowship in Advanced Rural General Practice (FARGP) with RACGP gives you the opportunity to develop additional skills for safe, accessible and comprehensive care for Australia’s rural and remote communities. Your Advanced Rural Skills Training (ARST) term involves 12 months training in one or two sub-specialty at any point following your hospital year. Visit the RACGP website to learn more.
