Transition to College-led training
In 2017, former Federal Minister for Health, the Honourable Greg Hunt announced the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program would transition to the two general practice colleges - the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).
Management of the AGPT program by ACRRM and the RACGP will commence from 1 February 2023.
We are committed to keeping our stakeholders up-to-date as we will progress through this period of change. We will continue to advocate for a seamless transition, to ensure as little disruption as possible to registrars, supervisors and all of our stakeholders.
We will keep this page updated with transition-related resources as they become available.
