Information for Registrars

All GP registrars must complete twelve months of post intern/general registration hospital terms in an accredited hospital prior to commencing their general practice training terms (make yourself familiar with the mandatory hospital rotations for your end point qualification).

You may have already done enough hospital time prior to commencing the GP training program and are keen to head directly into your general practice training terms as soon as you enter the program. Commencement in GP terms is contingent on  training capacity across the NT, even if you are GP term ready you may be required to stay in hospital for six or twelve months.

If so you need to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning. This process is explained in the GP registrar training handbook and must be completed in the first six months of commencing a GP training terms.

Rural pathway GP registrars can train in Darwin itself. Since July 2010 Darwin is considered a rural location; however we do encourage rural pathway GP registrars to train in locations outside of Darwin by providing attractive subsidies and incentives as well as a strong support program. The handbook is not intended to replace the vocational training information and requirements on the RACGP, ACRRM or AGPT websites.
