What will change
From 1 February 2023, the RACGP and the ACRRM will deliver AGPT Program training through their respective college-led training models. Regional training organisations will no longer deliver AGPT program.
From semester one 2023, the National Consistent Payments (NCP) framework will outline the financial support available to eligible registrars, supervisors and practices.
College-led training will bring GP training into alignment with other specialist medical colleges which have direct responsibility for their training programs. Under this new model, the RACGP and the ACRRM will select, educate, train, assess and support registrars through to fellowship.
For more information on college-led training, please see:
- the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP)
- the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM)
National Consistent Payments (NCP)
National Consistent Payments (NCP) will restructure the existing payments provided by Regional Training Organisations. The NCP framework outlines which payments will be made to registrars, supervisors and practices involved in GP training.
National Consistent Payments will start from semester one 2023.
In addition to the payments outlined in the framework, the GP colleges (RACGP and ACRRM) will also provide flexible payments. The colleges will manage and administer flexible payments to registrars, supervisors, and practices.
For more information on these reforms, see the AGPT National Consistent Payments.
GP Workforce planning and prioritisation
GP Workforce Planning and Prioritisation organisations will provide analysis and advice to GP training colleges. This advice will inform the geographic distribution of AGPT registrars. These requirements will help to address current and future GP workforce needs.
The Transition to College-Led Training Advisory Committee (TCLTAC) provides advice to the Australian Government on the transition of the AGPT program to a college-led model.
