The Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program selection process for 2018 will be jointly led by the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). 

Each college will run its own merit-based process to select applicants for the AGPT Program. The ACRRM will select 150 positions nationally, and the RACGP will select 1,350 positions nationally. A distribution of the training places for 2018 AGPT is available below.   

The Department of Health is responsible for assessing an applicant's eligibility for the AGPT Program. For further information on the eligibility requirements to join the AGPT Program, go to Stage One - application and eligibility  

The transition to a college-led selection process for the AGPT Program was announced by Assistant Minister for Health, the Hon Dr David Gillespie, MP, on 30 January 2017. Further information regarding the announcement can be found on the Department of Health website
