PEP & Future Leaders Program open for applications
Applications now open for the Practice Experience Program (PEP)
Non-VR doctors, don’t delay your application. The rules are changing in January 2022.

From January 2022, it will be compulsory for all doctors to be enrolled in an RACGP-approved program such as the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT)Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS), or have completed the Practice Experience Program – Standard Stream or Practice Experience Program – Specialist Stream, in order to be eligible to sit the RACGP Fellowship exams. 
There are only two more PEP application periods remaining for the current government funding scheme. Application periods include:
  • 4 - 25 October 2021
  • 10 January - 1 February 2022
Make sure you’re still eligible to sit exams
Start your journey to Fellowship now with the Practice Experience Program – an RACGP-approved program that can put you on the path to Fellowship. With access to online education, experienced GP mentors and an optional structured exam preparation course, you can draw from and expand on your ongoing experience. Most importantly, you’ll remain eligible to sit exams while accessing full A1 Medicare rebates.

Applications are now open and close on 25 October 2021. Visit for more information. 

Applications now open for the RACGP Future Leaders Program 2022
The Future Leaders program is designed to give RACGP Fellows the confidence to lead change in their community.
The program prepares both current and future generations of GP leaders by critically evaluating and implementing evidence-based methodologies in leadership, connecting an ever-broadening network of GP leaders, and allowing new and relevant ideas to come to the fore and be put into action.
The program supports participants to network with people from different parts of the community and to develop a network of support within the RACGP.
Many alumni progress into key RACGP roles, work on local, national and global projects, and propose recommendations for the future of general practice – from peer group mentoring to recommendations for how primary care can address climate change.
Running from March to October each year, Future Leaders incorporates a blended, action learning approach and covers organisational dynamics, change management, influencing, strategic thinking, advocacy and representation. Each participant undertakes a project, engages in facilitated peer group discussions, and a monthly webinar.
Applications are now open and close on 24 October 2021. Visit for more information.
