Register your interest with GP Colleges

Applicants must be Australian or New Zealand Citizens or Permanent Residents and have Medical Registration by the date of entry into the program. For full details on eligibility visit the AGPT website.

It is important to check eligibility before you apply as anyone not eligible will not move through the selection process.


Hospital Requirements

There are a number of mandatory hospital rotations required – General Medicine, General Surgery, Emergency Department and Paediatrics. Other optional rotations which provide a good breadth of experience make up the two years of hospital experience required before registrars enter the general practice terms of their training.

If applicants are unsure if their hospital experience meets the requirements, applicants can contact EV and seek some guidance. More details.
