NSW Rural Generalist (Medical) Training Program

 

 

The aim of the NSW Rural Generalist (Medical) Training Program (RGTP) is to provide a supported training pathway for junior doctors wishing to pursue a career as a rural general practitioner able to provide primary care within a community general practice setting as well as advanced services and/or procedural skills within a rural hospital.

The RGTP is a training program of up to four years in duration (depending on the year of entry). It comprises a year of hospital practice (or general practice), a year of advanced skills training and two years of support to consolidate advanced skills while training in community general practice or other approved training posts.  There is flexibility to enter later in GP training if eligible trainees are identified and positions are available.

All trainees on the program are required to be enrolled, or planning to enrol, and working toward meeting the requirements of Fellowship with either the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP)/Fellowship of Advanced Rural Practice (FARGP) and/or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM).  Earliest entry onto the RGTP is at the commencement of postgraduate year two (PGY 2) which aligns with entry into general practice training.

Upon successful completion of the RGTP, trainees exit with a Fellowship with either the RACGP and FARGP and /or the ACRRM and qualifications in at least one advanced skill.

Training in advanced skills is overseen by the relevant specialty college and leads to the attainment of qualifications that meet the accreditation standards of that college.

More detailed information on the program may be accessed in the relevant documents available here.
