Becoming a James Cook University (JCU) GP training practice is a wonderful way to contribute to the development of a sustainable workforce, and to share your expertise with doctors undertaking their GP training.
GP registrars undertake general practice terms/primary rural remote training terms in an accredited training practice as part of the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program.
Training practices are accredited by either the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) or the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), depending on their location and the experience they can offer a registrar.
JCU undertakes the accreditation process on behalf of each College. It is important that you are familiar with the training standards prior to starting the accreditation process. Please refer to the relevant college website for further information about the accreditation standards.
