Rural region priority preferencing

Rural region priority preferencing

We’re committed to maintaining the rural training pipeline for doctors with a demonstrated connection to a rural community.

During the AGPT Program application process, you can request to be considered for rural region priority preferencing. If you’re deemed suitable for a training offer and your first preference is the rural pathway, you may be considered to receive region and/or subregion priority allocation if you can demonstrate a significant current or previous connection to the region (or where applicable, subregion) of your first preference.

We’re currently updating the information required for the 2025 intake. We’ll be updating this page with more information closer to applications opening. If you have any questions in the interim, please contact us on
