GP registrars

Are you interested in doing an academic term as part of your GP Training at UWA?

UWA General Practice has been taking GP Registrars for Academic Term rotations for more than 20 years.

Our GP Registrars

Registrars in this position can be full- or part-time. They can focus on teaching or research. They can select their own project or they can be included in a group project with one of our research teams. Previous academic rotations undertaken have varied from 6 months full-time to 12 months part-time while also working clinically elsewhere.

If you are interested in discussing an Academic Term please email the SPARHC School Manager.
