Networks

GPRA networks have been developed for individuals with a common purpose and background. We offer networks that support:

  • GP registrars undertaking general practice training
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander registrars
  • GP registrars interested in a career in medical education
  • GP registrars interested in a career in supervision
  • Prevocational doctors interested in a career in general practice and who are undertaking hospital training
  • Medical students wanting to learn more about a career in general practice

 

Indigenous General Practice Registrar Network

GPRA provides support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander registrars through the Indigenous General Practice Registrar Network (IGPRN). This network is designed to enable registrars to support each other, and to ensure that future generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors have access to training programs.

Learn more about IGPRN or email igprnenquiries@gpra.org.au for further information.

 

General Practice Registrar Medical Educator Network

The General Practice Registrar Medical Educator Network (GPRMEN) is for people planning a career in medical education, and also for those who aim to work in general practice and would like to learn to become skilled in training others. The network supports registrar medical educators within the Australian General Practice Training program through peer and direct support. GPRMEN also advocates for a defined career pathway for registrars seeking a career in medical education.

General Practice Registrar Emerging Supervisor Network

The General Practice Registrar Emerging Supervisor Network (GPRESN) was formed to provide peer-to-peer networking and guidance to those interested in supervision. GPRESN's aim is to foster interest in supervision early in training and enabling registrars to gain the skills to allow them to feel more confident in this role.

Going Places Network

The Going Places Network (GPN) is a prevocational doctor network that allows you to explore the world of general practice while you complete your hospital training.

 
Ever noticed how once you enter your hospital training, general practice tends to fall off the radar? You may work in acute care and other specialties, but you don’t get much exposure to general practice? This is where the Going Places Network comes in.

By joining GPN you will get access to general practice focused networking events and educational events, publications, online resources and loads more.

General Practice Students Network

The General Practice Students Network (GPSN) is run by students interested in general practice as a specialty, for students with the same interest, facilitated by the General Practice Registrars Australia (GPRA) head office to create programs and resources to support the next generation of Australia's general practitioners. There are active GPSN clubs in medical schools at all 21 university campuses across Australia.

GPSN offers programs focused on exposing medical students to the inspiring diversity of a career in general practice. Activities include fun clinical skill sessions, social events, seminars and conferences, peer support and networking opportunities.
