General practice is a highly diverse and unique discipline that combines rigorous scientific training with relationship-based philosophy. It is the single largest medical speciality in Australia, placing it at the very center of an effective healthcare system.
General practitioners are often the first contact for patients requiring treatment for any medical condition. No other medical speciality has a greater level of patient contact then general practice – providing continual, whole-of-patient medical care to individuals, their families and the community. The speciality provides a unique opportunity for doctors to form a bond with their patients by providing comprehensive, lifetime, health care.
Where general practice can take you is limitless, offering a life-long career filled with a wide range of learning and employment opportunities.
