GP Training - Information for doctors
A career in general practice is a rewarding and intellectually stimulating career that offers many professional and personal benefits. General practice gives you the freedom to follow your passions, sub-specialise and virtually design the career that's right for you. Whilst every GP practice is different, being a rural GP offers the opportunity to work in some stunning locations, whilst using a wide range of skills and being able to practise true continuity of care. Work is more likely to be required in the pre-hospital and transfer environments and this requires extended skills such as emergency, intermediate and palliative care. Living in a smaller community, with more on-call and reliance on healthcare professionals, brings specific challenges but can also offer fantastic levels of personal and professional satisfaction.
