RTON Chair announcement


NTGPE is excited to announce CEO, Mr Stephen Pincus, has been appointed as Chair of the Regional Training Organisation Network (RTON) group. Mr Pincus said RTON was committed to training GP registrars for fellowship and the primary healthcare workforce needs of all Australian regions.

“We will continue to work collaboratively with both ACRRM and RACGP to ensure high quality education and training for all registrars,” Mr Pincus said.

“Our key focus will be to support the smooth transition of GP training to the Colleges and to work with the Colleges, Department of Health and other stakeholders to increase GP registrar numbers in the AGPT program, particularly in under-serviced rural and remote areas.”

Congratulations, Stephen!
