Do I have to start my AGPT training in a general practice?

No. In fact, most registrars start training in a hospital setting as both the medical colleges - the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) – require a minimum level of hospital-based experience in order to be considered for GP fellowship.

If you are eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL) with regard to a hospital setting, you can request to start active training in a general practice.
