Start your career as a rural generalist

A rural generalist operates at the height of their scope providing comprehensive general practice and emergency care.

The WA Rural Generalist (WARG) program is a partnership between WAGPET, the WA Country Health Service, Rural Clinical School, the Western Australian Primary Health Alliance, Rural Health West and the GP colleges to provide a supported training pathway from medical school to fellowship.

A rural generalist is a medical practitioner who is operating at the height of their scope providing both comprehensive general practice and emergency care.  A career as a rural generalist means you’re at the frontline of ensuring equal health access in regional, rural and remote Australia.

If you are attaining fellowship through ACRRM, congratulations you’re already training on the WARG program. If you’re training towards an RACGP fellowship, intention and completion of the Fellowship in Advanced Rural General Practice (FARGP) places you on the WARG program.

The WARG program provides a clearly mapped training journey, on-the-job training, the highest quality mentoring, and outstanding opportunities to develop advanced skills. It’s a tailored, highly personalised, vocational training program.
