Program time obligations

The FSP is a two-year program, though this may vary if you are completing a Rural Generalist Fellowship. If you're doing rural generalist training, you’ll have an additional year (at least) to complete that component of the program.

FSP registrars must complete the education and training requirements within five calendar years from the commencement of training.

  • All education and training requirements must be completed within two calendar years from the commencement of training.
  • All post-education requirements must be completed within three calendar years following completion of the education requirements.

What is not included in the program time

Some types of leave are not included in the training caps:

  • Category 1 leave
  • Category 2 leave – registrars who are unable to be matched to an appropriate training facility
  • Category 3 leave – Australian Defence Force (ADF) service leave.

For more information about leave, refer to the Leave Policy.
