Does where GP registrars train influence where they practice as a GP?

Have you ever wondered if where a GP registrar trains has an influence on where they practice?

Our Research and Evaluation team’s New alumni EXperiences of Training and independent Unsupervised Practice (NEXT-UP) study has looked at that question!

A cross-sectional analysis, questionnaire- based study, NEXT-UP included participants who were early-career GPs who had achieved their vocational GP qualification with either RACGP or ACRRM 6 months to 2 years previously from one of three participating regional training organisations.
