How do I pick a training region for my GP training?

The Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program is delivered by a national network of regional training organisations (RTOs) such as GPTQ, in distinct geogrphic training regions.

Each training region – and its regional training organisation (RTO) – has unique characteristics, including different clinical opportunities.

You will need to research the regions to find one which fits with your personal and professional commitments, career goals and needs.

All RTOs meet the standards of AGPT training for GP fellowship of the two colleges - the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). There are some differences between RTOs in the way they deliver the training program.
