Experience the NT as part of your GP registrar training


The RACGP Northern Territory Placement Support Grant (NT PSG) provides up to $15,000 in support to GP registrars who are undertaking training in a different region of Australia and are willing to relocate to the NT for a period of their training (min 6 months). Additionally, current NT-based registrars who relocate from an MM2 location to undertake a placement in an MM6-7 location can also apply. The grant is open to both general and rural pathway registrars.

This round of grants will apply to the 2024.1 term. Those considering a relocation in 2023.2 or a future placement in 2024.2 are encouraged to send an email expressing interest now.

Who can apply?

Interstate registrars

This means that a GP Registrar who commits to relocating from interstate to an MMM6-7 region in the Northern Territory will be eligible for up to $15,000 in grant funding.

Northern Territory registrars

Move from MMM2 to MMM6-7 locations, train for 6 months, and receive $5,000. Extend your commitment to 12 months and qualify for an extra $5,000.
