Latest GP Jobs with
19AB Academic Exemption
All these roles are GP Jobs with 19AB Academic Exemption that require you to teach medical students in your GP clinic.
19AB academic exemptions require approval by a listed university and by Medicare, as such we are not able to provide any guarantees about success with these exemptions. We work closely with universities around Australia to ensure that GPs utilising this exemption have a genuine interest in teaching medical students, and this is reflected in our application process (we will ask you to demonstrate your interest in teaching).
Frequently asked questions for GP Jobs with
19AB Academic Exemption
Will I be paid for teaching?
Absolutely! The practice will receive $400 per day which will then be split with the teaching GP – usually in the same proportions of your % of billings – or as agreed with the practice owner. For example, if your billings are 70%, you would receive $280 for the day.
Will the students be able to actively assist with patient care?
Yes, all medical schools encourage ‘hands on’ learning – provided you have assessed that it is safe to do so. For example, they can help with history taking or assist with procedures.
Do patients mind having a student present?
Most patients see it as a privilege to contribute to the next generation of doctors. Particularly, older patients might enjoy giving their medical history to a student who has plenty of time to listen. Most patients will also perceive that only the best GPs are teaching medical students and will see your involvement as a positive.
Can I choose my student rotations?
Yes, prior to the beginning of the semester you will be asked what rotations you would like to commit to. Obviously you will need to be available for those times, but if you are away for a day while the students are there, other colleagues can fill in and help.
Do I need to work full time?
You need to work at the teaching practice for at least 3 days/week in order to be considered for teaching positions.
Do students need to spend all their time with me?
No, you may want to ask them to do research tasks on their own. All the universities currently encourage students to be exposed to a multidisciplinary team, so they can spend time with a practice manager, pharmacist, physiotherapist – or anyone else that is contributing to the care for the patients.
What is your feedback from GPs already in the program?
Without exception, all the GPs we have worked with say they enjoy the teaching and find it stimulating. They enjoy the interaction with students and love seeing the students develop new skills.
Will this slow me down and result in lower billings?
Over the years working with many GPs in this program, we have never heard GPs report reduced earnings, and in fact some report they have earned more. All the student billings will be added to your billings.
Will I still be restricted by 19AB on where I can work?
Some of the teaching positions available can help you circumvent restrictions with regards to 19AB. It is subject to your success in being appointed as a clinical teacher. Further checks and approval by relevant statutory bodies will be necessary to determine whether you can work outside the boundaries of your 19AB restrictions.

“I found you genuine, kind & highly motivated & proactive. You did your best to understand what I wanted and came up with lots of options and suggestions tailored to my liking, which helped me pick exactly what I wanted. You were also crystal clear in defining what you can adv on & what you are not comfortable advising. You were good in foreseeing the events during the paperwork stages and helped me prepare for them. You were very prompt in replying to my queries. To put it in a nutshell I was convinced you would land my dream job the very 1st time I met you in Melbourne. Thanks for your kind help. I had a lovely experience with Alecto and was able to find the job of my dreams! Couldn’t have done it without them.”Dr GopiQueensland
“I’m very happy that I initially contacted you to guide me through the whole process of finding and starting GP work in the Northern Territory, Australia. I experienced a very personal and informative service from everyone involved, and was guided through the process of registration step-by-step. This made the whole thing a lot less stressful and daunting. Prompt email responses, informative written material and even a welcome phone call on arrival were signs of a high class service. I would certainly recommend and use the company again. Many thanks.” I had a lovely experience with Alecto and was able to find the job of my dreams! Couldn’t have done it without them.”Dr NirdushanDarwin
“Working with Monique and Martina in Australia, (UK GP applying from New Zealand) made the laborious and pedantic process of applying for GP Fellowship and Australian registration much easier than trying to do this alone. It was still a long process but the team helped every step of the way, and were happy to liaise with the AMC, RACGP or AHPRA when needed.They worked hard to secure a good GP position for me, and overall I highly recommend and thank them for all their help in the process of relocating to Australia as a GP.”Dr UrsulaBrisbane
“I would strongly recommend Alecto to GPs and other relevant health professionals contemplating a move to Australia. After having contacted at least five different agencies dealing with GPs relocating from the UK to Australia, Alecto took the top spot in terms of understanding my requirements especially with the type of position my wife and I were looking for, the workings of the Australian Health Care, the paperwork involved, Immigration requirements, adjusting to the Aussie lifestyle, etc. Their consistent help throughout the 10-12 month period prior to the move is definitely worth mentioning. They helped us settle on arrival in Australia and made our relocation process a smooth transition, especially as we had no prior local contacts. Now in Australia for a year I could not have entrusted my relocation to a better team. I would give them a 10/10 and wish them immense success in the future.”Dr DylanPerth
“We are currently in Brisbane working, living and enjoying the ‘dream’. This road, which involved a fair amount of paperwork and lots of questions about the different applications, i.e. AMC/RACGP/AHPRA, would not have been possible without your knowledge and experience. Martina, and particularly Lynn, were also invaluable in the whole process. To have all of you answer the numerous questions I had all the way through the application process, no matter how trivial, was incredibly helpful. Can’t recommend the service provided high enough. Thanks to all.”Dr SivBrisbane
“I am very grateful to Alecto who helped me secure a GP position in Melbourne. I found their dealings very professional and it was a pleasure speaking to Martina who understood our needs perfectly and suited me with the right position. I would highly recommend Alecto and advise all prospective GPs who are looking for a GP position in Australia to contact Alecto first and speak to Martina its director.”Dr SyedMelbourne
“Martina and her team made looking for a new job in Melbourne an insightful process. Martina teased out my career aims, offered me appropriate options then navigated me through the process. I am now settled in my new post and still have occasion contact from the Alecto team to check up on how it is all going. Thanks!”Dr LauraVictoria
“I enjoyed the whole experience with Alecto, engaging with Martina, how it enabled me to recognise those things that I am already doing and encouraged me to continue exploring new workplace in Melbourne. The whole service is really client focused and full of hope and they will find their best way to fulfil my criteria. Thanks Martina and Alecto!”Dr ShahVictoria
“I just wanted to thank you for finding me the perfect job. As I had already worked in WA I had a pretty good idea of where I wanted to be in Perth. However when I applied for an advertised job you went out of your way to find another position for me exactly where I wanted to live. I am now working the hours I want in a supportive practice, close to both my home and kids’ school. It has definitely been a good move.”Dr PennyPerth
