From relocation subsidies to training support and pastoral care, NTGPE provides a number of supports and financial subsidies for rural GP registrars – as outlined below.
NTGPE AGPT relocation subsidies
NTGPE recognises the personal and financial costs associated with the decision to relocate to the Northern Territory to undertake your GP training.
With this in mind, we provide a one-off relocation subsidy up to $2,500 to applicants who are successful in gaining a position with either college in the Northern Territory geographical region through the AGPT program in the 2022 cohort and beyond*.
To be eligible:
- The applicant must have resided full time in another state or territory (not the NT) at the time of acceptance into the AGPT program in the Northern Territory geographical region
- Only available to applicants from the 2022 cohort onwards.
Costs covered include but not limited to:
- Travel costs to the location of your first training post – e.g. airfares, car travel costs (ATO per km rate)
- Temporary accommodation relating to relocation either in your current state/territory residence, or at your first training post location
- Freight costs/transport for household goods, cars etc.
- Reasonable other costs associated with relocation will be considered within the $2,500 cap
- Food and beverage during the relocation period will not be covered.
Supporting documentation required and claim process:
- Reimbursement will be provided on provision of paid tax receipts after commencement of training in the Northern Territory
- For vehicle travel reimbursement, you will be required to provide fuel receipts showing evidence of journey
- To claim, please use the NTGPE subsidy claim form found at this link.
*These subsidies are subject to NTGPE receiving continuing funding from the Australian Government for the AGPT program.
