The RACGP Awards celebrate the important contribution GPs make to the health of patients and communities across Australia.

Within the Department, Dr Johnson has held leadership positions in teaching and learning since 1999 and has made a significant contribution to the growth and maintenance of the primary care teaching network and the progression of the general practice curriculum.
