The Department of Health contracts with nine regional training organisations (RTOs), across 11 training regions, throughout Australia to deliver two general practice training programs in urban, regional and rural areas  the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program and the Overseas-Trained Doctor National Education and Training (OTDNET) program.

The AGPT program provides vocational training for medical graduates wishing to specialise in general practice. The two endpoints of the AGPT program are the Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) and the Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP).
