Eligibility (featured image)

You may be eligible to become a GP registrar if you have an Australian medical degree.

Overseas doctors need to meet residency criteria coupled with extended local medical registration.

What drew me to general practice? It’s the holistic approach to patients; being in such a privileged position to get to know your patients very well and to care for them over a long period of time.

You may be eligible for GP training in Australia if you:
