After you’ve been admitted to Fellowship
Apply for specialist registration with AHPRA
You’ll need to apply to AHPRA for specialist registration as your access to Medicare rebates as a specialist GP is linked to specialist registration with AHPRA. You should apply as soon as you’re admitted to Fellowship. For more information and to apply, visit the AHPRA website.
Apply for a new Medicare provider number
The Medicare provider number issued to you under the FSP will be cancelled by Medicare once you become a Fellow of the RACGP. At the appropriate time, the RACGP will email you with the instructions on how to apply for your new provider number.
