General Practice Registrars Australia
General Practice Registrars Australia (GPRA) is the peak voice for the next generation of general practitioners. We are a not-for-profit organisation representing over 25,000 medical students, prevocational doctors and GP registrars through our networks and activities.
Our primary objective is to improve the health care of all Australians through excellence in education and training and ensure that general practice is the medical specialty of choice.
We achieve our objectives by:
- Advocating for registrars on educational, employment and policy issues in general practice.
- Negotiating the National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars with General Practice Supervisors Australia (GPSA). Read more.
- Producing resources that enhance the registrars’ training and employment experience.
- Supporting our networks: the General Practice Student Network (GPSN), the Going Places Network (GPN) and the Indigenous General Practice Registrar Network (IGPRN), the General Practice Registrar Medical Educator Network, and the General Practice Registrar Emerging Supervisor Network. Read more.
