Only 14% of GPs in training report they are concerned about whether they will be able to secure employment on completion of the training program, compared to one in four non‑GP specialists, and one in three interns (Figure 62).
GPs in training with the RACGP’s Fellowship Pathways are satisfied with their training. Eighty-four per cent would recommend their training position to other doctors, and eight in 10 would recommend their workplace as a place to train.55
When compared to their peers, GPs in training feel well supported in their workplace. They are also less likely to experience workplace conflict, feelings of being unappreciated and difficulty accessing senior clinicians, and are not as adversely affected by requirements to work overtime as their peers in other specialty training pathways (Figure 63).
However, GPs in training do report a greater impact from dealing with patient expectations than their peers report (Figure 63).
