I am an intern this year. Can I apply for the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program?

Yes, you can apply in your intern year to start GP training the following year.

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.

If you have only completed your intern year, your first placement within the AGPT program after enrolment will be in a hospital placement doing prerequisite training. The only exception would be an applicant with a 457 temporary visa, where other conditions apply.
