If I gain an exemption from the 10-year moratorium, can I transfer from the Rural Pathway to the General Pathway in my GP training?

Gaining an exemption from the 10-year moratorium can make you eligible to transfer from the Rural Pathway to the General Pathway during your GP training. However, this exemption on its own is insufficient to approve the transfer and does not mean you are automatically entitled to transfer. All pathway transfers from rural to general require individual consideration.

Transfers are considered if:

  • you have an identified career and/or education and training requirement (excluding Extended Skills, Advanced Specialised Training and/or Advanced Rural Skills terms) and all options to undertake training in an area in need of doctors in your training region have been exhausted.
  • you or an immediate family member have extenuating and unforeseen changes to your personal circumstances.
  • you or an immediate family member have an unforeseen medical condition that cannot be adequately or safely managed in the rural location where you are based.
