Committees

Becoming a member of a committee is a great place to start if you are interested in management positions and future governance. As a member, you will also gain:

  • A sound knowledge of the involvement of agencies in the Australian general practice industry
  • Experience in policy development, governance and advocacy
  • An opportunity to share ideas and implement change.

  
What are the committees and networks?

Committees are comprised of GP registrars interested in advancing a stated issue. Objectives may include changes or additions to AGPT policy, the publication of a guide or resource for GP registrars, or simply to support a particular marginalised group of registrars through issues that arise day-to-day.

Committees improve general practice training in Australia. Our networks perform a similar function to the committees, but have specific membership requirements. We currently have committees working in the following areas:

Assessments and Standards
Close the Gap
International Medical Graduates
Rural
Terms and Conditions
Wellbeing

  
Who can join a committee?

All members are welcome to join a committee. Committees also include at least one GPRA staff member, and one GPRA Board member specialising in the particular area of interest.

Our Advisory Council is the governing body concerning committees, and reviews all committee materials prior to publication.
