General practitioners(GP) Needed for Australia

GP Practice experience pathway (PEP) for Australia: MRCGP + Many other foreign GP degrees recognized

In March 2023, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) made a significant announcement that would open new doors for overseas doctors. Recognizing doctors with MRCGP International (South Asia), the RACGP has facilitated a pathway for these medical professionals to work as general practitioners (GPs) in Australia. This move is part of an effort to address the ongoing GP shortages, especially in regional and rural areas.

The Pathway to Australian General Practice

For doctors holding an MRCGP qualification, the journey to practicing in Australia has become more accessible. By being considered partially comparable specialists through the Practice Experience Program (PEP), these doctors can bypass parts of the Australian Medical Council (AMC) exams. This recognition directly places them on a training pathway leading to the Fellowship of the RACGP.


During their training, these doctors are not only gaining invaluable experience but are also compensated at rates similar to fully qualified Australian GPs. With salaries ranging from A$250,000 to A$350,000 per annum, the financial benefits are clear.

Opportunities and Support for International Medical Graduates

The Australian government, recognizing the need for more GPs, has streamlined the process for international medical graduates. With the introduction of the International Medical Graduate Recruitment Scheme in February 2023, foreign doctors can now expect a smoother transition to working in Australia.

This support extends beyond just the job search. Eligible programs from countries like Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, the Netherlands, and the USA have been recognized, making it easier for doctors from these nations to qualify.

Navigating the Process with Ease

The pathway to becoming a GP in Australia involves several key steps, from obtaining a comparability assessment to securing a job offer and completing the necessary training and exams. While this may seem daunting, the right guidance can simplify the process significantly.
