The general pathway is for registrars who wish to spend all or most of their training time in the metropolitan area.

Dr Sean Black-Tiong, GP Registrar. (Sean chose a career in general practice because it ticked so many boxes for him.)

The RACGP offers general pathway training which provides you with an option to train in urban or rural locations.

As part of your general pathway training you will experience general practice in a variety of settings, including  12-months training  via one of the following options:

  • Outer Metropolitan location; or
  • A rural location classified as Modified Monash Model (MMM) 2-7; or
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health training post in an Aboriginal Controlled Health Service or other approved Aboriginal Medical Service; or
  • Two six-month training placements from this list.

“The people of GPEx are enthusiastic and passionate about education and training, and I’ve had fantastic support from both my Program Training Advisor and Medical Educator during my years of training.”
