The assessment and selection process

2018 AGPT Entry

The Australian Government has announced another important component of its significant health workforce reform agenda, handing the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program selection to the two General Practice Colleges, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).

  • The two Colleges will manage candidate assessment.
  • The Regional Training Organisations will conduct applicant interviews.
  • The Colleges and the RTOs will make joint training offers to successful applicants.
