Transfer between training colleges

As an AGPT registrar, it’s possible to transfer between the two general practice colleges. The training you’ve undertaken so far, including hospital and general practice terms, may be credited at the discretion of the relevant college censor.

If you transfer from ACRRM to the RACGP, you must join the rural stream. Approval of a transfer to the general stream is at the discretion of the RACGP.

If you transfer from the RACGP to ACRRM, you must enter a training location in an MMM 2–7 area.

If you transfer to another college or undertake an additional Fellowship (dual Fellowship), your total program time doesn’t change.

You should ensure you have sufficient program time remaining to complete all program requirements before applying for a transfer. In extenuating and unforeseen circumstances, the relevant college may grant you an extension of program time to complete the training requirements. All decisions are at the discretion of the relevant college.

Talk to your training coordinator if you’re considering a transfer between colleges.
