How is GP training delivered?
GP training is based on an apprenticeship model where you learn from your local and regional RACGP medical educators as well as in supervised clinical roles in a combination of hospital and community settings.
We will facilitate workshops (virtual or in-person as current health advice allows), provide online learning modules, practice exam materials or mock exams, and one on one support from an appointed training advisor.
If you are offered an AGPT Program training position, RACGP regional team will work with you to help you find a practice within your training region that suits your training needs. We work with a network of health services, GP clinics and hospitals who will play host your training posts.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and workforce equity
Culturally safe practice is determined by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, families and communities. It’s defined as the delivery of safe, accessible and responsive healthcare free of racism through ongoing critical reflection about knowledge, skills and attitudes, practising behaviours, and power differentials.
All registrars in the AGPT Program complete specific training in these areas as essential building blocks in providing culturally safe healthcare across Australia.
The RACGP also provides dedicated support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors applying for the AGPT Program and registrars working towards Fellowship.
