Changes to the RACGP Registration Process

The RACGP has announced that they are going to change the way that they register overseas-trained GPs from Sep 1st 2019. From this date, applicants will only be given Fellowship (ie equivalence with an Australian trained GP) after that GP has worked for 12 months under supervision, in a rural area. Their definition of “rural” is based on the official Australian “Monash Model” and they’ve specified MMM2 or above. These re typically at least 45 mins to 1 hr from a city centre. If you link to this map, it will show the exact locations of the MMM2 etc:
Click the Modified Monash Model tab on the right hand side and then zoom in or input the name of the city / town

Paul I have to thank you for both last e-mails, that travel guide in your previous mail is perfect and it make me fell better. A bit. – I do not wake up at night screaming with fear anymore:-)
So far, so good. Last thing I might need is phone number to Betty, in case of emergency or something.
