General Practice Training Queensland (GPTQ) formerly Central and Southern Qld Training Consortium (CSQTC) provides vocational training to qualified doctors seeking to be general practitioners, via the Australian General Practice Training program (AGPT).  GPTQ also offers the Prevocational General Practice Placements Program (PGPPP) which provides Junior Doctors (PGY 1 & 2) with the opportunity to experience general practice in a supervised environment as part of their hospital training. In 2011 we have rural PGPPP placements available in St George, Yeppoon and Stradbroke Island.

Training with GPTQ will qualify doctors to work as a GP anywhere in Australia. GP Registrars will be able to choose from an extensive range of training posts available in rural, remote, regional and metropolitan and outer metropolitan areas, indigenous health and advanced skills.
