The Malvern Medical Centre is a Royal Australian College of General Practitioners accredited teaching site and is partnered with GPEx for the training of GP Registrars. A GP Registrar is a doctor enrolled in the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program. The AGPT Program is the main pathway that graduate doctors undertake to become specialist General Practitioners in Australia. GP Registrars are highly skilled doctors supported by a team of very experienced supervisors and medical educators.
GP Registrars may be required to change practices every 6-12 months as part of their specialised training program. While this change can be disruptive for some patients, it also brings a wealth of diverse knowledge into our practice team, as GP Registrars enjoy the benefit of training in a variety of specialities including cardiology, emergency medicine, obstetrics, paediatrics and many more.
