Eastern Victoria General Practice Training (EVGPT) is a not for profit company contracted by the Commonwealth of Australia to administer the Australian General Practice Training program facilitating training in the urban, regional and rural areas of Eastern Victoria. The work of EVGPT centres on providing training to develop a workforce that will provide high-quality GP services and meet community needs now and in the future. We are committed to increasing the number of appropriately qualified general practitioners across our region with a focus on quality provision and retention.
In cooperation and collaboration with our local stakeholders we work to ensure that all individuals have access to quality, highly trained primary health care, now and into the future. We do this through training in localised general practices and community settings with a focus on workforce needs.
We value the ongoing support of our practice stakeholders. We are proud of the achievements that have been made and look forward to our continued partnership.

The national perspective
A national perspective of GP registrar distribution across Australia. Since 2002 RTOs have delivered high quality training to increasing numbers of General Practice registrars. Australia’s RTO network is critical for the continuing distribution and growth of Australia’s safe, skilled General Practice workforce
EV is part of the Australian GP Regional Training Organisation Network (RTON). This presentation summarises the case for RTO involvement in the future delivery of the AGPT program under College-led training.
The Chairs of the Australian GP Regional Training Organisations met on Thursday, 17 September to deliberate the future of GP training.
