Gold Coast GPs are invited to supervise medial students, with a record-number of GPs attending the recent GP Trainer workshop at Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN).
Thirty-two clinicians attended the event in February, designed to assist local GPs to safely supervise registrars and medical students. Attendees had the opportunity to discuss the updates and implementation of the current curriculum for students and were able to exchange teaching tips and tricks to support quality teaching in General Practice.
CEO of GCPHN Matt Carrodus said that the steady climb of attendance at these events showed that local GPs were supportive in maintaining high quality education for the future workforce
“We work closely with our partners Bond and Griffith Universities, as well as General Practice Training Queensland, to ensure that the quality of education and placements remains at a high standard,” CEO Matt Carrodus.
“The number of GPs and registrars who attended our most recent workshop is evidence that our local practices also want to continue this high-quality work.”
Dr Asma Gundru from Myhealth Helensvale Medical Centre said the workshop provided her with the opportunity to participate in important discussion and sharing of her own experiences.
“The workshop itself provided practical advice, invaluable knowledge and a better understanding of the expectations for both supervisors and medical students.”
“I am in a unique situation having been through my GP placements as a medical student on the Gold Coast and now it’s come full circle, with me being able to share some of my experiences with new medical students.”
An additional two GP Trainer workshops will be held this year, with the next one scheduled for May in Logan and the final one for the year being held in July at GCPHN.
