General Practice Education and Training

The General Practice Education and Training (GPET) program continues to implement the recommendations of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Training Framework, with the key desired outcomes being to:

  • Support Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHSs) to engage further in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Training (ATSIHT) for GP Registrars (GPRs)
  • Encourage Regional Training Providers (RTPs) to enhance the involvement of ACCHSs in the governance of GPR training in their local area.

The GPET program focuses primarily on:

  • Participating in the GPET Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Training Capacity Assessment program
  • Discussions with key stakeholders around GP recruitment and services
  • Maintaining and strengthening links with RTPs to support the recruitment of GP Registrars in Aboriginal health services
  • Maintaining relationships with agencies such as Adelaide to Outback General Practice Training (AOGP), Sturt Fleurieu General Practice Education and Training (SFGPET), General Practice Australia (GPRA), Australian Indigenous Doctors Association (AIDA), Royal Australian College of General Practice (RACGP) and Rural Doctors Workforce Agency (RDWA)
  • Providing advice and direction to the GPET Board as a representative on the GPET Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Training Advisory Group (ATSIHTAG)
  • Sustaining continuous support for the three accredited ATSIHT posts in South Australia – Nunkuwarrin Yunti, Pika Wiya Health Service Aboriginal Corporation and Port Lincoln Aboriginal Health Service
  • Providing information and support to South Australian ACCHSs to become an ATSIHT post
  • Collaborating with RTPs in promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health as a career path and area for specialisation
  • Facilitating the education of GPR’s around Aboriginal health and the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector
