Need help understanding your pathway?


Date Updated: 2024-01-16

If you are a clinic in a MMM1 Non DPA area you will be looking to hire a:

  • VR General Practitioner
    • who is out of their moratorium or 
    • who is eligible for an exemption and
    • who is a Permanent Resident or Citizen (this can be an IMG or an Australian Trained Doctor) and
    • who has completed Fellowship.

  • Non-VR General Practitioner
    • who is on their partner’s visa and
    • who is eligible for a 19AB Exemption
    • *Please be aware that this doctor will not be able to pursue Fellowship through a training program whilst working in your practice.

  • Non VR Doctor on a Visa Restricted By 19AB
    • Since 16 September 2023, Health Workforce Certificates are no longer a requirement for International Medical Graduates meaning that these Doctors can now be considered in M1 Non DPA locations. 
    • The same rules apply as the above section “VR General Practitioner Restricted By 19AB” but please note that you will bill A2 Medicare rates.
