What's the difference between the Rural Pathway and the General Pathway?

There are two pathways available through the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program:

If you train on the Rural Pathway, you are required to complete your training in rural and remote settings. Registrars on the Rural Pathway can work anywhere in Australia once they achieve Fellowship.

If you train on the General Pathway, you can complete your training in rural, remote or metropolitan settings. However, there are restrictions on General Pathway students in terms of training in areas in need of doctors.

Doctors on the 10-Year Moratorium can only apply for the Rural Pathway.
