Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program Planning and Prioritisation

ClosedGrant Closed: 16th of February 2022 - 5:00 pm Value: Unspecified Run By: Australian Government Department of Health Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=5bd17611-ed5a-4eaf-a1cf-9f020df652dd

This program provides funding for organisations to provide information to inform distribution targets set in grant agreements with the RACGP and ACCRM for delivery of the AGPT Program. The analysis produced through this activity will be a key input to AGPT Program training placement decisions that balance current and future community need, current and future training capacity, and registrar preferences.

The AGPT Program is a postgraduate vocational training program for medical practitioners wishing to pursue a career in general practice and/or rural and remote medicine in Australia. The AGPT Program is a three to four-year training program that offers 1,500 training places each year. Selection into the AGPT Program is a competitive merit-based process.

The objectives of the grant opportunity are for grant recipients to work within specified Primary Health Network (PHN) boundaries to:

  • Deliver robust, independent, evidence-based recommendations to the Department on AGPT training placement priorities at the GP catchment level, to meet the community’s current and future GP workforce needs.
  • For each PHN region, document the analysis underlying recommendations: current and future community health needs, current training capacity, requirements to develop future training capacity, and pathways for registrars to complete all training within the region.
  • Foster collaboration with relevant stakeholders in the PHN region to integrate their data, insights and expertise into the formulation of advice
