AGPT registrar training handbook
When you believe you have met all the requirements for Fellowship you may complete an application for Fellowship.
You must apply for Fellowship within three years of successful completion of all Fellowship exams and within one calendar year of completing all training program requirements.
The Fellowship application form will become available on your assessment statement once you have passed the Fellowship exams. To access the application form, once available, log into the My candidacy portal and navigate to the assessment statement.
You’ll need to provide all documentation related to the requirements for Fellowship, including your completion of training report.
As the Fellowship process can take up to 12 weeks, it’s important to provide all the requested documentation to avoid delays with your Fellowship.
Once you’ve met the requirements of Fellowship, you’ll automatically receive a program time extension of up to 12 calendar weeks in which to submit your Fellowship application.
If circumstances prevent you submitting your application for Fellowship for more than 12 calendar weeks, your training coordinator may apply for a further extension on your behalf. Additional extensions are considered on a case-by-case basis.
If you’re an ADF registrar and complete your requirements for Fellowship while on deployment, you may apply for a one-off extension of 12 calendar weeks. The extension time will commence from the date you return from deployment.
If you are an ADF registrar, check out our companion guide for information tailored to your circumstances: Australian Defence Force guide.
If you are undertaking dual Fellowship with both the RACGP and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM), you don’t need to wait to Fellow from the RACGP while continuing towards your ACRRM Fellowship.
However, you should not submit your application to Medicare for recognition as a general practitioner until you have attained ACRRM Fellowship as well.
