What is career-based mentoring?

Career-based mentoring is a process which focuses on supporting you to achieve your professional goals.

The GPEx career-based mentoring program gives you an opportunity to connect with a GP career-based mentor to have a chat about the reality of urban and/or rural General Practice and help you determine whether GP might be the specialty career for you.

Our GP mentors have a range of expertise in the diverse specialty of General Practice, and can share their experiences and discuss a possible pathway to applying to General Practice if you choose.

The program enables you to meet with a GP mentor and discuss your queries over two sessions. Mentors can connect you with further information and provide resources to find out more about opportunities in the General Practice specialty.
