Can hospital training be included as RPL?

Hospital training may count towards RPL if completed after your intern year.

You must complete a minimum of 12 months’ of post-intern hospital training in accredited Australian hospitals for your Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program.

Both medical colleges – the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) – also have prerequisite training requirements, such as surgery and emergency medicine.

If you have post-general registration experience in a hospital setting prior to starting your AGPT program, that time may count towards fulfilment of the mandatory rotations in that specialty for your AGPT training.
