You will not have to change practices at six months, as College-employed registrars are required to do.

The training fees associated with GPEP year 1 will be paid by the College. Your salary will be paid by your practice and you will need to pay for your clinical and written examination fees as well as the College membership fees.

Self-funded 

As a self-funded registrar you pay GPEP fees yourself, which are about $40,000 + GST. You are employed directly by a practice and work at that practice while you do your GPEP year 1 training.

You will not have to change practices at six months as College-employed registrars are required to do.

The College will invoice you for the training and administration fees ($40,000 + GST) associated with GPEP year 1. Your salary will be paid by your practice and you will pay for your clinical and written examination fees as well as the College membership fees.
