GP Rural Generalist Pathway


The concept is to develop a pathway visible to those who
are still within the clinical training years at Medical School,
especially those associated with Deakin University, taking
them through the prevocational years (Intern and
Postgraduate Year 2) into a choice of targeted skills training
in their third or subsequent postgraduate years on their
path to specific training within the general practice
environment in the Barwon South West Region or other
areas covered by Southern GP Training.
Targeted skills training in the third or subsequent
postgraduate year would be in the fields of Obstetrics
(Advanced Diploma), JCCC Anaesthetics, Critical Care (ICU
and or Emergency Medicine), Surgery or Community
Paediatrics. The pathway involves 5 years of training 3 years
with Barwon Health and two years with Southern GP
Training.
Successful applicants for this pathway must exhibit a
genuine interest in undertaking a career in rural general
practice, preferably within the Barwon South West Region
of Victoria. Applicants who have undertaken their medical
training at Deakin Medical School or one of the other
Victorian Medical Rural Clinical Schools are prefered.
As 2013 will be the first year of the program applicants to
fill five intern, five HMO2 General Stream, one JCC
Anaesthetic (must be at least PGY3), one Advanced
Diploma in Obstretics (must be at least PGY3) , one joint
ICU/Emergency Medicine post (must be at least PGY3) , one
surgical skills post (must be at least PGY3) and one
community paeditraics post (must be at least PGY4 with at
least one term of GP training) are being sought. All
successful applicants will be expected to already be part of
the Australian GP Training or apply for GP training via AGPT
with Southern GP Training, during their intern or
subsequent postgraduate years.

The Royal Park Campus specialises in aged care,


rehabilitation and ambulatory services. Advances in clinical
practice, the changing health needs of an ageing population
and community expectations are resulting in fewer and
shorter hospital stays and a greater demand for care in the
home. Consequently, an increasing emphasis at the Royal
Park Campus will be placed on ambulatory care.

of the AMA HMO Certified Agreement.
