Go beyond with Practice to Practice

March 15, 2021

Have you wondered what it’s like to work in general practice in a world quite different to your own? You can now get a taste for life as a GP in a contrasting urban or rural community as part of an innovative new practice exchange program.

The RACGP has launched Practice to Practice, a pilot program that connects general practices in diverse geographical areas to grow locum pools, increase peer support, enhance professional development and provide a greater service offering for patients.

Practice to Practice encourages GPs to go beyond their every day and try life and work in a different practice setting.

General practices all over Australia can participate in Practice to Practice. Whether you’re based in an urban, regional, rural or remote area, the program has benefits for you, your teams and your patient community. It can help address workforce shortages in rural areas and encourage professional development as you encounter new clinical challenges not common in your own practice.

Though the program is designed to link practices, it can also help individual GPs connect with a practice in a different area.

Registrations are now open for the pilot which will run from 1 March – 31 December 2021.Places are limited. To find out more, visit the RACGP Practice to Practice website.
