Training time & extensions

GP Synergy and the Department of Health recognise that during the course of training circumstances may arise where you may require additional time to complete your requirements. GP Synergy generally supports registrars engaged in training to apply for extensions to their training time if needed.

GP Synergy is able to approve the first six-month extension to training time with a suitable application and focused learning plan prepared by you in conjunction with your medical educator.

Further extensions to training time are possible if the requirements of the AGPT Extension of Training Policy are met. If you need a further extension to your training time please discuss this with your education coordinator and/or medical educator.

Not all extensions can be approved as they may not meet the requirements of the AGPT Extensions of Training Policy.
