Webinars to help young doctors get the experienced touch

The General Practice Registrars Australia (GPRA) Future Series webinars, running until 2 December, are designed to support registrars and newly fellowed GPs on their journey from term one to fellowship.

GPRA chair Dr Emily Farrell said more than 100 registrars have signed up to attend one of the webinars to listen to GP guest speakers, ask questions about the topic and share information with other registrars.

“The benefit of Future Series is that it puts registrars and newly fellowed GPs in direct contact with GPs who have experienced a range of business options,” Dr Farrell said.

Future Series is made up of 16 webinars and covers four business streams: Successful Negotiation, Being the Contractor, Being the Boss (Solo Practice), and Sharing the Profits (Group Practice).

Registrar Dr Lawrence Tay, who attended the webinar on contract options, said the series gave him valuable practical business information.
