Opt in to the RG Fellowship at any point of training or opt out if your circumstances change. If you decide to opt out of RG training, you will complete the Fellowship of the RACGP and will still be able to work in rural and remote Australia.

Your rural GP community
Find your people and join a GP community that supports you throughout your career – in training and beyond.
Join the largest representative of rural GPs in Australia, with more than 22,000 members and more than 10,000 GPs living and working rurally; we’ve been training rural GPs for over 60 years. As an RACGP registrar, you’ll have access to this community and a strong network of support. Our training adheres to high standards and provides a clear learning pathway encompassing general practice, hospital and additional skills to prepare you well for a career in primary care.
A balanced focus
Gain experience in hospital and community-based care settings so you’re equipped to work across both.
Broaden your horizons beyond training
As an RACGP Rural Generalist or Rural GP, you can choose to work in private practice, hospitals, the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Australian Defence Force, retrieval medicine, Aboriginal Medical Services or even overseas in places like Antarctica.
