Research Opportunities

GPTT has strong links with many research institutions including the University of Tasmania where GP registrars are able to take up academic special skills posts.

GPTT offers many exciting and challenging placements to support GP training.

Learning Plans

Registrars now prepare a learning plan using g.prime – GPTT’s online portfolio based on their learning needs.

Learning plans are reviewed every six months in conjunction with their designated medical educator and GP supervisor.

Learning Portfolio

Registrars use g.prime to keep track of all their evidence of learning including assessment forms, feedback reports and course attendance.

Feedback Forms

GP supervisors provide feedback on registrar performance every three to six months.

Training Meetings

Evening training meetings are held fortnightly in each region. Our aim to provide a forum for peer teaching and discussion of issues relevant to GP registrars in a supportive environment.
