Placements, Provider Numbers


Yes, as in the General Practice Fellowship Placement Guidelines, the RACGP is authorised to approve A1 Medicare Provider Numbers for those taking part in an RACGP Approved Fellowship Program at an accredited practice located in Modified Monash Model (MMM) 2019 areas 2-7.


You are expected to already work in or find your own job in comprehensive general practice.


Under FSP, you may have two provider numbers for regular practices. If the practices are branches then you may have up to three provider numbers if the following requirements are met:

  • Provides services consistent with comprehensive general practice
  • Practices have the same ownership
  • Practices share patient databases
  • Practices share booking and medical record systems
  • Practices share staff (doctors work across both practices)

You will be able to move practices if the new practice complies with supervision, accreditation, provider number and Comprehensive General Practice guidelines.
