Current general practitioner shortages need to be addressed, especially in areas of need. This study was designed to investigate which registrar characteristics were associated with retention in the field of general practice (and in the region of training).
Regional training providers may best be able to serve their training region by addressing the specific needs of the general practice registrar family unit.
Fifty-four percent of the cohort was working in general practice in Tasmania at the time of the survey. General practice registrars were more likely to be a GP working in Tasmania if they were nonmedically partnered (OR 14.42, p=0.001). They were also more likely to be living in Tasmania if they were older (OR 1.47, p=0.029) or nonmedically partnered (OR 23.4, p=0.014).
