Overview of GP’s in Australia

General practice is the largest medical specialty in Australia and is the cornerstone of Australia’s healthcare system. It’s a unique discipline of largely relationship-based specialist medical care providing person-centred, continuing, comprehensive and coordinated whole person healthcare to individuals and families in their community.

Working in general practice is different to working in hospital and also is different to working in many other specialties. Working in the community as the point of first call, GPs often see the patient in the early stages of their illness when the problem is undifferentiated. Not knowing what the next patient might present with and dealing with undifferentiated problems is challenging, but it is also one of the most rewarding aspects of general practice. GPs also manage an enormous variety of different problems and conditions with a broad span of knowledge, so they never get bored – no two days or patient presentations are the same.

A career in general practice allows you to pursue many areas of specific interests. For example, if you have a clinical interest in diabetes, paediatrics or palliative care, you can choose to develop specific skills in that area either during your training or after attaining Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) by undertaking further formal studies.
