GP Hospital Training Opportunities

There are various opportunities available for junior doctors to be exposed to General Practice (GP) experience early in their career, prior to making a vocational decision. Some opportunities throughout the year include:

Albany GP Placement

Interns who have an interest in GP can rotate to the “GP” placement in Albany. This is available to interns employed by Fiona Stanley Hospital, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and WA Country Health Service (Albany).

GP Hospital Training Pathway

The pilot GP Hospital Training Pathway (GP Pathway), which commenced in 2020, will transition into business as usual from 1 January 2023.

The GP Pathway provides participants with equitable access to GP-suitable rotations that are relevant and useful in preparing for entry into a community GP placement.

Expressions of interest for the GP Pathway for 2023 are now closed.

For more information, including instructions on how to submit an EOI and Frequently Asked Questions, please refer to the GP Pathway Website.

Junior doctors that have applied, or plan to apply, for the AGPT can view the GP Pathway rotations being offered for 2023 here.
