Overview of the AGPT program

CEO welcome message

CEO welcome message

Welcome to the RACGP’s Australian General Practice Training program. I thank you for hosting, or supervising, an AGPT registrar and playing a vital role in fostering the next generation of GPs.

Hosting a registrar is a rewarding experience – it will bring fresh ideas and energy to your practice, enhance the practice’s reputation, and be a learning opportunity for the whole team. For supervisors specifically, you’ll have the opportunity to develop and learn new skills with a range of professional development activities.

The RACGP is committed to supporting you in your role, because we understand that to do your job well, you’ll need accessible administrative and professional support – from local, regional and national RACGP teams, to peer networks.

This handbook includes all the information you need to host and support a registrar. You’ll find information about the AGPT program and your responsibilities, tools and resources for all staff, and links to more detailed information, such as policies and external organisations.

In 2023, the general practice colleges resume responsibility for training the next generation of GPs. We are very excited, while being aware of just how big a responsibility this is. Our highest priority is ensuring the transition is seamless for everyone involved in training and for the communities we serve.

You are joining a supportive community of like-minded practices and practitioners. The RACGP welcomes and thanks you.

Paul Wappett
Chief Executive Officer
