Build skills in research and critical thinking
The Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Academic Post Program offers registrars the opportunity to build their skills in the areas of research, teaching and critical thinking through a 12-month training term. The post is completed concurrently with clinical training requirements.
Registrars learn academic skills through individualised research and learning plans, with mentoring and support from MCCC, universities and their chosen College.
Participating in an MCCC Academic Post provides exposure to research and teaching in an academic environment and encourages registrars to incorporate academic work into their careers. As registrars (and in their future GP role), being able to identify, filter, critically appraise, interpret and apply quality evidence is becoming more and more vital.
