About The General Practice Training Program

A General Practice Registrar is a qualified medical practitioner who is in the process of completing post-graduate qualifications in the specialty of General Practice through the Australian General Practice Training Program. In western Victoria, this structured program is administered by Murray City Country Coast GP Training, with standards set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine. Prior to commencing supervised general practice placement, a registrar is required to have extensive experience through relevant hospital departments, including rotations in general medicine, general surgery, emergency medicine and other specialties. The culmination of these studies, with the successful passing of final clinical and written examinations, is the award of Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP), and/or the Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM).

MCCC GP Training Logo

The qualification of Fellowship in either the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine, recognises that a medical practitioner has specialised in the area of Primary Care and Family Medicine. Acknowledging the central role of the General Practitioner in the care of communities, the Australian Government and Australian Medical Council have deemed that General Practice is an academic discipline and specialty in its own right. Hence as with every other medical or surgical specialty, all current medical graduates who choose Primary Care and Family Medicine must complete formal post-graduate training to become recognised as specialist General Practitioners.  Overseas, General Practitioners are also known as Family Physicians.
