Extended Skills Training (FRACGP)

Registrars on the RACGP pathway are required to complete 6 months of Extended Skills Training in an area of special interest. This six-month post is undertaken for the purpose of extending the depth and breadth of the Registrar's skill base in an area relevant to primary medical care. This can include terms in hospital, general practice and other health settings. Registrars select one discipline in which to gain further skills.

The following is a sample list of some of the skills training options available to AGPT Registrars, subject to availability:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health
