Getting registered as a GP in Australia can be a long process, however making sure you have all the documents you need prior to commencing can help make it a pain free process.

  • There are a few steps to registration as a GP in Australia, including but not limited to fellowship with the RACGP and registration with AHPRA.
  • You will be required to provide multiple documents with your application, some of which may be difficult to find if you qualified a while ago.

Make sure you have the following documents when coming from the UK or Ireland:

  • Primary Degree
  • Specialist Degree (MRCGP, MICGP)
  • Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT)
  • Evidence of at least 50 hours of CPD completed within the last 12 months.
  • Evidence of a practice based self-reflective activity completed within the last 36 months (e.g. Audit)
  • Supporting documentation for any gaps in your practice for longer than 12 months
  • Documentation for any changes in name

The evidence of an Audit is the most recent change to the registration process, and we are finding some GPs are struggling to provide this. So, if you are thinking of coming to Australia, make sure this can be completed for a seamless registration process.
