There are many benefits when considering a career in general practice:
More doctors are choosing general practice as a career for the many advantages it brings. General practice demands extensive medical knowledge and offers the opportunity to subspecialise and undertake procedural medicine. General practice allows for balance between work and family life, and the opportunity to be an integral part of the community.
"I practice the breath of medicine: pregnancy, babies, children and adults; acute and chronic disease; mental health and internal medicine. I've trained in very remote Indigenous communities and mainstream town-based practices. It's all there. …I like the fact that I'm largely autonomous and I look forward to having employment flexibility to accommodate the needs of my growing family."
Dr Jeremy Jones, AGPT Registrar, (photographed above).
