Doctors on the Queensland Health Rural Generalist program apply for GP training via the GP colleges.

We’ll be walking down the footpath and every person or every second person will greet me by name. My friends from Brisbane can’t get their head around that!

Applying for GP training

The application process for Queensland Health Rural Generalist doctors is the same as for other applicants. However, you must select the Rural Pathway in your online application. Queensland Health Rural Generalist doctors are subject to the same competitive process as other applicants, meaning that a training place is not guaranteed.

At GPTQ, we welcome and support Queensland Health Rural Generalist doctors into our GP training program.

About Queensland Health Rural Generalist doctors

These doctors are part of a state-run program that encourages doctors to pursue careers in rural medicine. The program begins in university. Find out more about the Rural Generalist program at Queensland Health’s website. Note this is a different career path to the more common route of medical graduates independently joining the Rural Pathway.
