Become a GP
RACGP’s general practice training program is available in metropolitan, rural and remote regions over a 3-year (full-time equivalent) period. The attainment of a Fellowship of the RACGP signifies a GP as competent to deliver safe, specialised, and high-quality general practice care in Australia’s metropolitan, rural and remote communities.
A holistic approach to healthcare was what drew Dr Natasha Nottingham initially into a career as a GP. Read about her journey here.
The RACGP general practice training program is a Government-funded Fellowship training program in the speciality of general practice. The RACGP curriculum has been designed to enable registrars to gain the essential knowledge and skills that are integral for GPs to provide quality care to individuals and families across the lifespan from a broad range of social contexts.
Training towards a Fellowship of RACGP provides registrars with flexibility to work across a range of health settings and locations in urban, rural and remote locations. For registrars wanting to develop additional procedural (e.g. anaesthetics, obstetrics) or non-procedural skills (e.g. mental health, paediatrics, palliative care), emergency medicine skills, and to build greater connections with rural communities, the Fellowship in Advanced Rural General Practice (FARGP) can be completed as an additional year. FRACGP and FARGP qualifications allows a doctor to work as a General Practitioner anywhere in Australia including taking on the specialist role of Rural Generalist.
GPEx delivers and supports RACGP’s education and training program to registrars on the Australian General Practice Training program.
