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: http://www.doctorconnect.gov.au/locator
Click the Modified Monash Model tab on the right hand side and then zoom in or input the name of the city / town

I just wanted to thank both you and Monique for finding me the perfect job. As I had already worked in WA I had a pretty good idea of where I wanted to be in Perth. However when I applied for an advertised job you went out of your way to find another position for me exactly where I wanted to live. I am now working the hours I want in a supportive practice, close to both my home and kids school. It has definitely been a good move.
