Welcome from Head of Department

2019 is now in full swing. We are very pleased to bring to you our news for the new year.

Thank you to all our GP Supervisors who recently attended our update on February 4th – hope you are having good experiences with the MD Students. Also a huge welcome to the new practices in our in our network and those that have joined our Data for Decisions (Patron) program of research. We hope to be working with you over the year on some important projects for the people we serve in general practice. We are currently recruiting for GPs and researchers to join our governance committee for this important asset. Please see the links for the expression of interest forms if you are interested in joining this group.

This year we are very fortunate to have welcomed six academic registrars to experience GP academia with us and we also have launched our Nurse Immuniser Course and Responding to Family Violence Course on our mobile learning unit platform (see articles).

We also celebrate our GP honoraries in the Australia Day Honours list.

Finally we also welcome our three visiting Swedish Medical Students along with our eight MD students doing research projects with our teams.

Professor Lena Sanci, Head of Department
