I have completed my 10 year moratorium but not my GP fellowship exams- what are my restrictions?

Here at People Medical Consulting we like spreading what we know and giving you a clear pathway to your career. We’re answering a different question each week based on queries raised via our Facebook & Instagram profiles.

 

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION…?

 

I have completed my 10 year moratorium but not my GP fellowship exams- what are my restrictions?  

 

If you’ve worked in Australia for 10 years, then you may have completed the requirements of 19AB and no longer be restricted by DWS.

 

If you have not been granted Australian Permanent Residency or Citizenship during this time, you will continue to be restricted by DWS until such time as you do get PR or Citizenship of Australia.

 

If you have been granted Australian Permanent Residency or Citizenship then you will be restricted by 19AA until you achieve fellowship.

 

19AA restricts Non-VR Doctors  who hold PR or Citizenship to working on an approved 3GA program until they achieve fellowship.
