Application eligibility – PEP Standard Stream

Please note there is only one more application period remaining under the current government funding scheme (see the Key Dates information on our website). Places are limited and we cannot guarantee every eligible applicant will be accepted. 

In the event that the program is oversubscribed, the RACGP will select applicants based on the criteria specified by the Commonwealth Government non-VR Fellowship Support Program grant. You can read our FAQs for more information.

All applicants applying for the PEP Standard Stream must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • hold current Australian medical registration – please note that this registration can be general, provisional or limited so long as practice location requirements, to allow access to a Medicare Provider number under PEP, are met
  • have a job or a job offer delivering general practice services in Australia in the Modified Monash Model (MMM) 2–7.  More information on the PEP FAQs section on 3GA Status and provider numbers

You can view the PEP Standard Stream application information if you're wanting to prepare for the next application period.

Please note that you may be deemed ineligible if your application does not meet your s19AB obligations. Please see FAQ 13.

Eligible PEP applicants will need to ensure they are financial members of the RACGP at the time of entry to the program.
