RACGP election: How to make general practice the first-choice specialty

This week we quiz the GPs vying to become the next college president on the hot topics facing the specialty

This is part four of our interviews with the GPs in the race to become the next RACGP president.

Monday was on the college's membership fees; Tuesday was about the Medical Board of Australia's revalidation regime; Wednesday was on the candidates' ambitions for the presidency.

Today, we ask: Applications for GP training have slumped, from 2560 in 2015 to 1908 this year. What is the fix?
