GP Synergy and the RACGP are aware that there have been significant disruptions to hospital terms for JMOs during the COVID-19 pandemic. These disruptions include JMO rotations being cancelled or significantly changed from original plans.
If you are considering applying to GP training, we would like to work with you to proactively meet any gaps in the JMO curriculum and mandatory term requirements so you are GP term ready at the commencement of training in 2021 (for PGY2 doctors) or meet your intern requirements.
In addition to the alternative ways you can meet your paediatric requirement outlined in the RACGP Paediatric Term Requirements, GP Synergy has RACGP approval for an additional alternative way to meet the paediatric term requirement. This is outlined in the ‘NAPPE’ – the NSW and ACT Pre GP Paediatric Equivalent.
Under the NAPPE, doctors can meet their paediatric requirement by completion of one half of a paediatric term or one emergency term* with >20% paediatric presentations, in addition to a number of courses and exposure signed off by their supervisor in their first GP term.
Surgery and medicine
The RACGP has approved alternate ways doctors can meet their medical and surgical mandatory terms. These are outlined in the Hospital Alternative Pathway Pre-GP Years (HAPPY) Guide.
