GPEx are excited to announce that five of our registrars have been awarded funding from the RACGP to complete academic posts in 2021.

An academic post is an AGPT term of training where registrars undertake research and teaching, with support and guidance from their University Supervisor and mentoring and support from GPEx.

Congratulations to these successful 2021 academic registrars:
