Academic opportunities

We are committed to developing future healthcare leaders through higher degree research, academic posts, and tailored skills training.

Higher Degree by research

The School of Rural Medicine (SRM) is committed to supporting students to undertake HDR degrees. Research staff in the School are available to supervise Research Masters and PhD projects.

Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program

The SRM is dedicated to offering Academic Post positions to suitable GP registrar applicants.

An Academic Post is a 12-month (0.5FTE) training term undertaken concurrently with clinical work as part of registrar training on the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program. It provides exposure to research and teaching in an academic environment and enables registrars to develop skills in research and critical thinking.

Academic Posts are available through RACGP and ACRRM.

Advanced Skills Training

The Research and Evaluation Team are happy to discuss co-supervision of AST research projects.

Build your skills in research, teaching and critical thinking

As a GP registrar is required to filter, critically appraise, interpret and apply all information available to them, the AGPT program seeks to ensure registrars have the opportunity to build their skills in the areas of research, teaching and critical thinking, with mentoring and support from RACGP or ACRRM and universities.
