Rural Generalists/procedural GPs are doctors providing important services such as anaesthetics, obstetrics, surgery, paediatrics, palliative care, and other skills in rural hospitals that do not have staff specialists providing this care.
Registrars can apply to undertake an Advanced Rural Skills Term (ARST) or Advanced Specialised Term (AST) to acquire one of these skills.
How to apply
Applications open 18 July – 7 August 2019.
RG/procedural posts are managed by HETI and applications are required to be made through NSW Health online Annual Medical Recruitment (AMR).
Registrars considering RG/procedural skills training are strongly encouraged to contact GP Synergy’s Special Programs and Education Manager, Felicity Gemmell-Smith on email@example.com.
