AOGP maintains Extended Skills Training (EST) posts, Academic Skills Posts, and Advanced Skills Training posts in South Australia.
Extended Skills Training posts
Extended Skills Training posts offer an opportunity to gain experience in areas of health and medicine that are relevant to General Practice and of special interest to the Registrar. These posts are available to all Registrars for a duration of three or six months and can be undertaken at any time during training after the completion of the core hospital terms.
Extended Skills Training posts include, but are not limited to the following:
Advanced Skills Training
Advanced Skills Training is primarily undertaken by Registrars intending to do a FACRRM or FARGP. The aim of Advanced Rural Skills Training/Advanced Specialised Training is to allow Registrars to further their knowledge and/or skills in an area of interest.

A Registrar undertaking this form of enhanced training may also choose to pursue a specific skill qualification in this area (eg Diploma in Palliative Care, Dip OBS/Advanced Dip OBS etc).
There are multiple types of posts that can be undertaken as Advanced Skills Training. These include, but are not limited to:
