Pathways to Fellowship
There are various pathways to being recognised as a General Practitioner in Australia. The endpoint of any of the pathways is either:
- Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) or
- Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP).
It is important to be aware that each of the GP Training programs have their specific eligibility criteria. Applicants need to review their individual eligibility for each GP Training Program.
