Entry Requirements

Selection to postgraduate entry positions occurs in the year prior to commencement on the QRGP.

Applications for postgraduate entry are accepted from medical officers who are in Post Graduate Year (PGY) 1 – 3 at the time of application and who will progress to PGY2 – 4 when they commence the following year.

Commencement as a QRGP postgraduate trainee is contingent upon the applicant securing an appropriate training position in Queensland by the specified intake year. Postgraduate trainees are required to undertake the following within two years of commencement.

    • Completion of at least 80% of the QRGP Logbook.
    • Completion of the QRGP Community Preparation Module.
    • PGY1 applicants only: Completion of a QRGP Rural Generalist Trainee Workshop (registration costs apply).
    • The Rural Generalist Vocational Preparation Workshop is required during completion of Advanced Skills Training (registration fee applies).

Applications are considered based upon:

  1. Demonstrated progress towards a Rural Generalist Medicine vocational training endpoint including evidence of:
    • attainment of or suitable progress towards general registration with AHPRA;
    • successful application or intention to apply to a recognised vocational training program with an endpoint of Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) and/or Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) plus Fellowship in Advanced Rural General Practice (FARGP).
  2. Provision of satisfactory term reports for:
    • all PGY1 and 2 terms undertaken at the time of application;
    • obstetric, anaesthetic and paediatric term experience.

      • Where terms have not yet been completed, evidence of term allocation is required.
      • The QRGP is not responsible for negotiating access to terms or training.
      • Terms may be achieved beyond PGY1 and 2. Applicants who have not yet completed these terms should note this and include their plan to secure access in their application.
  3. Where the applicant will not have achieved the above requirements prior to entry into the Pathway, a plan will need to be developed with a Rural Generalist Training Advisor to achieve this standard as soon as practicable.
  4. Provision of a written reference from a Director of Clinical Training or other suitable medical officer outlining suitability for a rural career path.
