I want to do more hospital time at the start of the training year that I am applying for. Do I have to defer my training or can this time count towards my training?

Both the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) require a minimum of 12 months’ post-intern hospital training in an accredited hospital post to meet their criteria for training and assessment.

Both ACRRM and RACGP also require you to complete a paediatric requirement and mandatory hospital rotations. This time will count towards your training so you would not need to defer.

Find out more prerequisite training you need to complete before starting your GP placements.
