Orientation to general practice

      1. Orientation to general practice

Last revised: 16 Feb 2024

Orientation modules

Before you begin your training in GPT1, you’ll have to complete some online modules as part of your orientation. These modules will introduce you to general practice, with a particularly focus on how working in general practice differs from working in a hospital environment.

Orientation workshop

At the beginning of your first training term in general practice there’ll be an orientation workshop in your local area where you’ll meet your training coordinator, medical educator, other local RACGP team members and other registrars. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the AGPT program. Participating in the orientation workshop is critical to your training and a mandatory part of your out-of-practice training program.  

We will let you know when the orientation is scheduled and any other details relevant to your orientation.
