Welcome to our Winter edition of the EV News.
Registrar selection for 2019 is in full swing with a strong level of interest for Eastern Victoria. This year we will again interview applicants for selection at our Hawthorn and Churchill offices.
Recent meetings with RACGP and ACRRM have been very constructive. We will be working closely with both Colleges as they take greater responsibility for GP training over the next few years.
The Federal Budget in May included education funding for non-vocationally registered doctors, together with an additional one hundred rural generalist places from 2021 and additional opportunities for prevocational placements.
We are eagerly awaiting our next three-year funding agreement and are reliably informed it will be coming our way in the next week.
Finally, our San Remo Supervisor Residential was a great success. Our thanks to all involved in preparing, contributing and attending. What an enjoyable way to connect, learn and support our GP training community.
Chief Executive Officer.
