Basic Physician Training In NSW

Basic Physician Training or BPT is a period of clinical training for a career as a physician that leads up to the Part 1 FRACP Examination of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP).

In NSW you may apply to join a BPT Network during your second postgraduate training year (PGY2), for entry at the start of PGY3.

To complete basic physician training you will need to accredit 36 months of training with the RACP.  To complete your BPT Training in NSW, you will need to apply for and be appointed to a BPT Network.

The details of the RACP program and requirements can be found on the RACP website.
The NSW Physician Training Council has oversight of the networked training program for BPT. All RACP requirements for ongoing training are incorporated into the Network Program. The BPT Program is coordinated and delivered in partnership with HETI, the RACP and the eleven training Networks.
