Ideally, a referee should be a medical practitioner who has supervised you for a period of four weeks or longer within the past three years by close of applications.
You will need to select referees who are able to confidently make judgements about your current skills and abilities, experience and work performance and suitability for general practice. Registrars are also suitable as referees, as long as they meet the above criteria.
If you are unable to nominate referees who meet the above criteria you should contact the RACGP to discuss your particular circumstances.
Please note: A referee request via phone cannot be accepted.
The RTOs, and/or the RACGP may contact referees as part of the assessment process to select applicants into the AGPT Program.
