After you complete your intern year you can opt to take postgraduate vocational training in general practice which is administered by the Australian General Practice Training program. Training takes three or four years to complete full-time followed by the college fellowship exams.

The Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS) is available to GP registrars working in rural or remote locations. It offers an enriching training experience and an alternative pathway to the college fellowships. For more information, phone RVTS on 02 6057 3400 or visit RVTS.
