About the Practice Experience Program


The PEP is a self-directed education and support program for non-VR doctors working towards Fellowship in regional, rural and remote Australia. It is delivered across the country in partnership with training organisations and is funded under the Non-Vocationally Registered Fellowship Support Program  as part of the Australian Government Department of Health’s Stronger Rural Health Strategy.

The program allows you to focus on your individual learning needs and the areas of Australian general practice most relevant to you. The minimum program duration is two terms (12 months) and the maximum time is five terms providing the educational time is finished by 30 June 2023 when the Government funding ends. To find out how your program duration will be determined if you're eligible for the PEP, you can visit our FAQs .

The content of the program includes online learning units, which are largely practice-based, and a comprehensive number of workplace based assessments (WBA). The learning units are not compulsory but the WBA components are. Participants can benefit from the support, guidance and educational advice of a specialist GP medical educator from their assigned training organisation.
