Upon being accepted into the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program a registrar must select which vocational registration endpoint (pathway) they will work towards. Registrars may choose either or both Fellowships (FACRRM, FRACGP).
As the name suggests ACRRM sets curriculum and standards specifically for rural and remote practice. ACRRM Pathway registrars are considered to be training according to a rural pathway, though choosing an ACRRM vocational registration does not limit a registrar to practice only in rural and remote locations.
It is important to understand the vocational training pathway your registrar is engaged with, the standards, milestones and assessments they will have to undergo to achieve vocational registration as a GP.
