The beauty of a career in General Practice is that it can be anything you want it to be. The road ahead is wide open and reaching your ultimate destination is as simple as making the right turns. Skills training posts help make the decision easier by allowing you to test drive a discipline and take your career to a whole new level.

Training options span the gamut from Obstetrics to Palliative Care and everything in between. Perhaps an adrenaline-fuelled career in Emergency Medicine gets your motor running, or maybe you’ll find the holistic and spiritual approach required of Aboriginal Health more comforting. Surround yourself with children in Procedural Paediatrics or Adolescent Health, or seek the library quiet of a post in Academic General Practice. Stay wide wake in Anaesthetics, or delve into the workings of the human mind in Mental Health. Can’t decide? Move into Small Town Rural Practice and do a bit of everything. For those with highly specific interests – please talk to us about other options.

Adding the right skills to your toolbox will turbo-charge your career and give you control over your lifestyle: hours of work, variety of consults, intensity of practice, employment options, and career development opportunities. Benefit from the professional recognition that comes with being the go-to-person for specialist advice and the ability to do high value consultations. Enjoy the personal satisfaction of working in an area you’re passionate about, making an impact each and every day.

Academic Posts

Academic posts are a great opportunity if you are interested in developing your research and/or teaching skills, or are considering an academic career pathway in the future.

The academic posts are a 12-month training term that include a part-time (0.5FTE) academic component with a university and a part-time (0.5FTE) clinical component.

The posts aim to provide exposure to research and the academic environment and encourage registrars to incorporate academic work into their careers. By the end of the placement, registrars can expect to have undertaken a research project and submitted a paper for publication. This is an excellent opportunity to experience academic general practice and it may be the beginning of a career in academic medicine.
