Need help understanding your pathway?

Date Updated: 2024-02-20

Yes, as long as you have Limited or Provisional AHPRA registration with Level 2 supervision or above! If you are under Level 1 Supervision, then you are not eligible for the Fellowship Support Program (FSP).

Can I apply for FSP if I have Limited / Provisional AHPRA with one clinic, but will have my new clinic approved by the time the program commences?

We reached out to RACGP to find out and their answer stated that if you have a nominated practice and supervisor on your AHPRA, then you must apply with these practices and supervisors. 

If there are changes, you can submit these changes 3 months after the commencement of your program. You can apply to make changes earlier, but in extenuating and unforeseen circumstances, this may be accomplished more quickly.

Please note all applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis. it is still possible to be accepted, but there is no 100% guarantee.
