Australian Defence Force (ADF) doctors

GMT welcomes Australian Defence Force (ADF) doctors to our region. The RAAF, Army, and Navy all have bases within our training region.

Training requirements

ADF doctors are required to meet the same general training requirements as other registrars enrolled in the AGPT program and will be required to undertake a period of full-time civilian general practice training in conjunction with their military training. This training can be undertaken as a composite term of civilian and military posts. Due to the service demands of the ADF, it is recommended that registrars undertake a full-time civilian general practice or primary rural and remote training term during their postgraduate year two.


GMT understands that ADF registrars may be deployed or posted outside of our training region at some point during training. AGPT policy allows ADF registrars to transfer between regional training organisations in these circumstances. ADF registrars should discuss their circumstances with GMT as early as possible. 

How to apply

ADF doctors apply to the AGPT program in the same way as non-ADF doctors. Applicants from the ADF should advise GMT of their circumstances during the national selection process and ensure that they select a training provider that matches their posting location.
