GPEx encourages all registrars to have their own GPs who can provide continuity of care, and access to support networks, in times of need.

We support registrars experiencing personal and/or professional difficulties by working with them to construct a support plan, which may include professional counselling or psychological services.

If circumstances have impacted your training, please contact your Program Coordinator, one of the RLOs, your Supervisor or Medical Educator, or one of the Senior Medical Educator team, to discuss how we can help you.
