Train, work and live in rural and regional Victoria

The Victorian Rural Generalist pathway (VRGP) is a state-wide end-to-end Rural Generalist training program that allows the future rural generalist workforce to train, work and live in rural and regional Victoria. The VRGP pathway can be commenced in either year one or year two of your postgraduate training years.

Rural Generalists are GPs with advanced skills in areas such as obstetrics, anaesthetics, emergency medicine, paediatrics, internal medicine, population health, Indigenous health and mental health. Rural Generalists in Victoria work in community settings, as well as contributing to the local rural health service to provide vital services.

In addition to providing a diverse and rewarding training experience, the long-term objective of the VRGP is to increase the employment of rural generalists in rural health services and communities across Victoria.
