Do you have an interest in research or the academic side of medicine? Undertake an academic post as part of your general practice training and build your research literacy, teaching and critical thinking skills.
What is an academic post?
An academic post runs for twelve months and is half time clinical and half-time research and teaching.
These posts are funded by the RACGP and ACRRM and involve an application process. The attached application guide provides additional information about the processes of both colleges.
Can I chat to someone at MCCC about applying?
MCCC are running webinars to provide more information about doing an academic post as part of your GP Training. See details below.
The webinars will be run by previous academic registrars who will talk about the why and how, plus will provide tips for applying for these posts.
