Going rural guides
Training in a rural setting is a rich and rewarding experience that can help you build your skills as a general practitioner. The AGPT program is a fantastic opportunity to experience rural general practice in a supervised and supported environment. You can also make a significant contribution to a rural community, even if you are only there for a short time.
