Limited AHPRA Registration

This is for Doctors who have their AMC Part 1 only (not AMC Part 2).  

There are two applications for Limited AHPRA Registration-

  • ALPS-30 is the application form ID for Limited AHPRA Registration for Post Graduate Training & Supervised Practice which you are eligible for with AMC Part 1.
  • AANG-30 is the application form ID for Limited AHPRA Registration for Area of Need, which you are eligible for with AMC Part 1 & 3 years assessed GP experience.

You will be required to work under supervision, with this level of registration.

Provisional AHPRA Registration 

This is for Doctors who have completed their AMC Part 1 & AMC Part 2, or who are entering via the Competent Authority Pathway

APRI-30 is the application form ID for Provisional AHPRA Registration. 

You will be required to work under supervision, with this level of registration.

General AHPRA Registration

You can obtain General AHPRA 3 ways-

  • Complete AMC Part 1 & AMC Part 2 (or be on the Competent Authority Pathway) in a hospital job, completing the mandatory rotations in Medical, Surgical & ED.  
  • Complete AMC Part 1 & AMC Part 2 (or be on the Competent Authority Pathway) in a GP job, and have 12 months of supervised practice.  
  • Complete AMC Part 1 & WBA 

Specialist AHPRA Registration 

You are eligible for Specialist AHPRA Registration if you have completed Fellowship Exams & Requirements, or completed the Specialist Pathway and its requirements. 

FAQs

Why would I get General Registration then?

Doctors may want to get General AHPRA as they will no longer require a supervisor, or to apply to AHPRA for registration to work in a different job. Additionally, AHPRA only allows 3 renewals of Limited AHPRA, so General AHPRA is an option in case it takes you longer to get Fellowship.

Do I require a certain amount of GP experience to work as a GP? 

For Limited AHPRA Registration, Area of Need (AANG-30) you will require 3 years of GP experience equivalent (which is interpreted to mean assessed). Limited AHPRA Registration, Postgraduate Training & Supervised Practice (ALPS-30) and Provisional AHPRA registration have no experience requirements, although we suggest caution as AHPRA may still consider your experience in their decision.
