Graduate Program & Medical Education
Ballarat Group Practice is proudly the largest regional accredited teaching medical practice for GP Registrars in Western Victoria. General Practitioners play an important role within the community. They are the first port of call for anyone who falls ill and it is important that general practitioners continue to enhance, teach and train future health professionals. Doctors at Ballarat Group Practice are dedicated to supporting and assisting our GP Registrars to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to function as confident, independent general practitioners.
Registrars gain valuable practical experience in different training locations, including hospitals, rural and urban practices, and specialised medical centres. They also have the opportunity to acquire experience in extended skills/advanced specialised training, procedural general practice and academic posts.
Having registrars work alongside established doctors not only keeps the practice open to new ideas and methods but encourages the doctors and the practice organisation to remain at the forefront of contemporary practice.
In 2020 Ballarat Group Practice welcomes 5 GP Registrars over three locations. They are qualified Medical Practitioners who have completed their medical degrees and have worked many years often within the local hospital system.
