There are three stages to the application process for the FSP:
Yes, the RACGP is proposing that the FSP includes two intakes a year, one at the start of the year and the second mid-year.
You must submit a new application for every intake you apply for. You cannot continue with an incomplete application from a previous intake.
No, however it is important to note that your visa requirements will still need to be met, including the right to work and deliver general practice services in Australia.
Yes, you must hold Australian general or limited (Level 2 Supervision and above) medical registration, at the point of application, without conditions, restrictions, reprimands, limitations, or undertakings that limit scope of practice.
You can apply for the FSP if you have limited registration, however you cannot be working under Level 1 supervision.
No, unless exceptional circumstances apply.
Yes. The FSP is self-funded and participants will have to pay program fees before the start of each term. A term is equivalent to six calendar months. See fee information.
An AMDS job isn't suitable for the education and training provided on the FSP. It is expected that all FSP registrars work in comprehensive general practice as outlined in the RACGP’s Comprehensive Australian General Practice Guidance Document. If your only place of work is in an Approved Medical Deputising Service, you will be ineligible to apply for the FSP. Extended hours practices may be considered.
If you're employed in an AMDS with an ongoing provider number and you have a job offer in comprehensive general practice meeting all the other requirements of the FSP, you can continue working at both practices. However, you won't be able to extend your AMDS provider number through FSP.
If you are currently enrolled in another general practice training program, you must provide evidence of resignation (and acceptance of same) from the current vocational training program if accepted into the FSP.
