As a GP your employer might offer salary sacrificing, a process by which you can claim various items through your employer and avoid paying tax on them. Relocation and travel expenses may be covered by larger hospitals that require you to move or travel long distances for work. Such incentives may be available at both public and private employers. Make sure you ask the right questions during the application process with any potential employer so you are well aware of what’s on the table.

The Australian government also provides a number of incentives to support recruiting and retaining doctors in small rural towns. For further details view available Rural Health Workforce Strategy (RHWS) Incentive Programs on Rural Health Australia’s website.

Training to become a GP is fully funded by the Australian government, through both the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) and Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS) program.
