Advice on GP training programme tender
The Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) programme Approach to Market (ATM) has closed, and in-principle agreement has been reached with providers for each of the 11 new training regions, for the administration of the AGPT from January 2016.
Current AGPT Registrars should remain in contact with their existing training providers.
If you have applied for the 2016 AGPT programme intake, and you have queries about the AGPT selection process, please contact AGPTselection@health.gov.au .
Streamlined Medicare provider number application process for GP Registrars
The Department of Health and the Department of Human Services – Medicare (DHS) have made changes to the Medicare provider number application process that will apply to most GP Registrars under the AGPT Program. These changes will be introduced on Monday, 16 November 2015 and will reduce waiting times for provider numbers to ensure that GP Registrars can commence their training placements on time, every time.
This streamlined Medicare provider number application process is supported by a revised Request for GP Registrar Placement Form that will also serve as the Medicare provider number application for the GP Registrar under the AGPT. This form is available from the Application Forms page.
