Why Train in WA
What does GP training in WA have to offer?
WAGPET delivers the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program to GP registrars in Western Australia, offering the highest quality education and training in rural, outer metro and inner city settings to prepare them to sit their fellowship exams with RACGP and/or ACRRM and qualify as a GP.
General practice is a diverse profession and Western Australia is a diverse state. Undertaking GP training in WA offers you a unique experience of learning from excellent and experienced practising GPs in the beautiful west part of Australia. In your training, you will have the opportunity to work and live in many different parts of the state, from Albany to Port Hedland and everywhere between. You can mould your practice to suit your professional, personal and family needs. There are opportunities to practise independently in a variety of urban and rural areas from admitting your own patients to the local hospital in a rural town to working in a corporate practice in Perth. You can train and develop advanced skills, such as obstetrics and anaesthetics. The ability to practise as a GP obstetrician or anaesthetist is available in urban areas as well as rural areas of WA.
Designed to reflect the flexibility and variety a career in general practice, WAGPET’s delivery of the AGPT program allows you to tailor your training to build the best foundations for your future.
