Vocational Training Pathway

The RACGP’s Vocational Training Pathway is a three-year vocational training program for medical practitioners wishing to pursue a career as a specialist general practitioner. Medical practitioners in the Vocational Training Pathway are referred to as registrars.

On completion of all of the requirements of the pathway registrars can apply for Fellowship of the RACGP. To view the requirements, see the Vocational Training Pathway – Requirements for Fellowship Policy.

There are two entry points into the Vocational Training Pathway:

  • the Australian General Practice Training Program (AGPT) – with applications through the RACGP. 

The RACGP is responsible for the selection of 90% of rural and metropolitan candidates seeking to enter the AGPT Program, commencing with entry for the 2018 intake. To find out more about the RACGP AGPT selection process visit

  • the Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS).
