Eastern Victoria GP Training (EV) has achieved an excellent result by filling 100% of its training places for 2021 across both rural and general pathways.
EV’s training places are spread across Eastern Victoria in metropolitan, outer-metropolitan and rural areas of Eastern Victoria’s footprint. Doctors undertaking the rural pathway spend the majority of their training in our rural region, which is comprised mainly of Gippsland.
“Eastern Victoria GP Training is an experienced and well regarded training organisation. We pride ourselves on our quality program, diverse delivery methods and our registrar satisfaction,” says Dr Mark Rowe, CEO.
“While this year has had many challenges for our industry and for junior doctors due to COVID-19, we believe that general practice has proven to be an important pillar in primary health care delivery. GPs are at the frontline and are critical in caring for our communities.
“To see the high level of interest in training with EV is encouraging for our communities. Our work centres on the GPs in training and the communities they serve throughout our region, and leads to better health outcomes for all.
“This is a great result for us during what has been a challenging year. We are proud of our contribution to our communities.
Dr Rowe acknowledges our partners RACGP and ACRRM and their management of AGPT selection.
“Thanks to the work of the two GP Colleges, RACGP and ACRRM. It is through their help and support that we have been able to achieve these positive outcomes for 2021 selection,” says Dr Rowe.
