Medical Education

Overview

NTGPE’s medical education team has continued to develop and deliver education and training for GP registrars in accordance with the Australian General Practice Training Program (AGPT) requirements and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) training standards. In addition, they also facilitate training, education, policy and services for the various orientations, teleconferences and debriefs the John Flynn Placement Program (JFPP) require.

The GPR and JFPP programs continue to complement each other by introducing the participant to GP life in the Northern Territory. The various orientations, teleconferences and debriefs that occur throughout the year keep NTGPE program participants well supported by the medical education team.

Medical educators are particularly skilled at assisting GP registrars in creating diverse and innovative training plans (i.e. combination of remote, indigenous health, procedural, academic, public health, mainstream, hospital-based posts and more) probably more so than in any other comparable jurisdiction nationally, and the medical education team support many GP registrars in this manner.

The medical education team continue to have a huge role in GP registrar workshops and conferences both intra and inter-state.
