From 17 November 2023 until 17 May 2024, practising GPs applying for RG Fellowship via recognition of prior learning and experience will pay zero fees.
AGPT new applicants and current registrars
There is no registration fee for new applicants or current AGPT registrars.
The Additional Rural Skills Training (ARST) fee of $2,800 (GST free) will be charged right before you start your Additional Rural Skills Training post. The ARST fee is only payable for the six RACGP managed ARSTs. The ARST fees for anaesthetics, obstetrics and emergency medicine are administered by the relevant medical college (ANZCA, RANZCOG or ACEM).
RVTS and FSP registrars
A $950 (GST free) registration fee is applicable to all RVTS and FSP registrars, in addition to the ARST fee of $2,800 (GST free).
Practising GP new applicants
A $950 (GST free) registration fee is applicable to all practising GP new applicants (those who do not already hold the FARGP). If you are applying for Recognition of Prior Learning and Experience (RPLE) for your ARST, the ARST fee may not apply to you.
