About the AGPT programme

The Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program is an Australian Government funded initiative which provides training for registrars towards fellowship and gaining specialist (general practitioner) registration.

The AGPT program is three to four years of full-time training offered in urban, regional and rural locations nationally, delivered through training providers across Australia.

These training providers deliver training towards two vocational endpoints recognised by Medicare Australia: 

  • Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) 
  • Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM)

Training providers also deliver training towards the RACGP’s Fellowship in Advanced Rural General Practice (FARGP).
