General Practice Registrars Australia (GPRA) is excited to announce roundtable webinar on 23 July 2024 for the General Practice community.

The workshop will focus on:

  • Understanding the primary challenges and opportunities identified by GP registrars and training bodies.
  • Discussing issues faced by GP registrars and emerging supervisors in training, and exploring ways multiple organisations, including Colleges, medical indemnity providers, and Primary Health Networks, can enhance the registrar experience
  • Delving into funding issues and discussing preferences for salary models and experiences with the Single Employer Model.

Dr Michael Wright, Chief Medical Officer of Avant Mutual, will be present to listen, learn, and provide reflections at the end of the session.

Dr Wright is also the Chair of RACGP’s Funding and Health System Reform – Reference Expert Committee, and the President of the Central and Eastern Sydney PHN.

His extensive experience and leadership in the field will offer valuable insights and guidance during the workshop.

Workshop agenda – Tuesday 23 July 2024:

  • Issues facing GP Registrars
  • Barriers and opportunities for General Practice more broadly
  • How organisations can better support training and trainees
  • Reflections and next steps – Dr Michael Wright.

This workshop is an important opportunity for all involved in GP training to come together, share their experiences, and work collaboratively towards improving the training environment and support structures for GP registrars.
