Policy Development Notice: Placement Policy

14 March 2023

This notice is to advise that the RACGP has updated its policies for the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program. The new Placement Policy will come into immediate effect, superseding the previous corresponding policies as of Tuesday, 14 March 2023

What has changed?




The Placement Policy has been developed as the RACGP is now responsible for placement of Registrars in Training Sites.

The RACGP has assumed responsibility for placement of registrars in training sites for the AGPT program and the FSP.
Previously, this role was fulfilled by the regional training organisations, and therefore, development of this policy was required to define the requirements and processes for Registrar placement.

The Placement Policy defines the principles and requirements for the placement of Registrars in Training Sites and supersedes previous regional training organisation policies.

When do these changes take place?

The changes take place 14 March 2023.
