The Australian Government has announced that the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program will transition to the general practice colleges from 1 February 2023.
In line with this change GPTQ will no longer deliver GP training and will cease operations at the end of January 2023.
For many months now GPTQ has been working with the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) to best ensure that the transition process causes minimal disruption to registrars, supervisors and practices.
ACRRM and RACGP will be providing information on education and training from First Semester 2023 to their respective registrars, including those who will commence training in 2023.
For those considering enrolment in GP training after 2023, please contact ACRRM or RACGP to discuss your options.
