Improving employment arrangements for GP registrars
AMACDT and its General Practitioners in Training Advisory Committee (GTAC), held a Single Employer Model for General Practitioners in Training (GPiTs) Planning Day on Sunday 6 December 2020. More than 30 representatives attended, including GPiTs, supervisors, advocacy, education, and training organisations to discuss how to achieve an improved employment model for GPiTs in Australia. Attendees considered two options for a single employer model – State based and Commonwealth – and discussed the practical aspects of how each would work in practice.
This informed the AMAs submission to the Department of Health General Practitioners in Training Advisory Committee and will support further AMA advocacy in this area. The Summary and Outcomes Statement from the AMA SEM for GPiTs is here.
