GP training under the spotlight at AMA National Conference

11 May 2015

In light of the wide-ranging reforms to general practice training, what needs to happen to ensure that quality training continues for current and future registrars? How can we build a sustainable general practice workforce in Australia? These are some of the issues that will be addressed during the plenary session at the AMA national conference on 30 May.

The session will be chaired by GP registrar Dr Danielle McMullen and include the perspectives of Professor Simon Willcock, Dr Penelope Need and Dr Sally Banfield. The session will include a debate on which training model will reflect the vision of future general practice and what makes for a beneficial general practice training experience.
