Become a GP

Become a specialist in life

What could your life as a GP be like?

A day in the life of a GP is as diverse as it is rewarding. No two days are the same, and it is this variety that draws many to the specialty. Add to that the clinical challenges, opportunities to make a difference to your patients and their communities, a supportive and passionate collegial network and the relationships you will form with patients over a lifetime, and you’ve got a compelling case for general practice as an incredibly fulfilling career choice.
