MY PRACTICE DOESN’T MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF MDRAP, WHAT ARE MY OTHER 3GA OPTIONS?

Published on January 15, 2019

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…? 

My practice doesn’t meet the requirements of MDRAP, what are my other 3GA options? 

 

LOCATION REQUIREMENTS FOR MDRAP 

In order to work under MDRAP as a General Practitioner, your practice must meet the following criteria: 

  • DWS Location 
  • Modified Monash Model (MMM) Classification between 2 – 7 

 

 

WHERE CAN I CHECK IF A PRACTICE IS ELIGIBLE? 

You can find this information at DoctorConnect at this link: http://www.doctorconnect.gov.au/internet/otd/publishing.nsf/Content/locator . You will need to check the ‘DWS for GPs’ and ‘Modified Monash Model’ and enter the address to find the necessary information.  

 

 

ALTERNATIVE 3GA OPTIONS: 

Your 3GA options depend on your Registration Level and experience as a General Practitioner. 

 

If your practice is not eligible for MDRAP and you have General Registration, you will be eligible for the following 3GA programs: 

  • AGPT 
  • ACRRM Independent Pathway 
  • AMDS 
  • Practice Experience Pathway (PEP) – Only eligible if you have 1 year of Australian GP experience 
  • RLRP (Until the Application Cut-Off Date and you are required to have 2 years GP experience) 
  • SAPP (Until the Application Cut-Off Date and depends on the Category you are eligible for) 

 

If you have Limited or Provisional Registration and your practice is not eligible for MDRAP, you will have the following 3GA options: 

  • Practice Experience Pathway (PEP) – Only eligible if you have 1 year of Australian GP experience 
  • RLRP (Until the Application Cut-Off Date and you are required to have 2 years GP experience) 
  • SAPP (Until the Application Cut-Off Date) 
  • ACRRM Independent Pathway 

 

 

I DO NOT FIT THE CRITERIA FOR ANY ALTERNATIVE 3GA PROGRAMS 

If you do not meet the eligibility criteria for any of the alternative 3GA programs, you will be required to join MDRAP until you meet the eligibility. This means that you will need to change practices, so you can work in an eligible practice.
