RACGP Practice to Practice program
The RACGP’s Practice to Practice program connects general practices in diverse geographical areas to increase peer support, enhance professional development, grow locum pools, and provide a greater service offering for patients. The program encourages GPs to go beyond their every day and experience life and work in a different practice setting.
General practices all over Australia can participate in Practice to Practice. Whether they’re based in an urban, regional, rural or remote area, the program has benefits for them, their team and patient community. It can help address workforce shortages in rural areas and encourage professional development as GPs encounter new clinical challenges not common in their own practice. Though the program is designed to link practices, it can also help individual GPs connect with a practice in a different area.
Registrations are currently being accepted for the pilot program, which will run until the end of the year, but places are limited. GPs and practices can register their interest on the RACGP website, here: https://www.racgp.org.au/the-racgp/faculties/rural/practice-to-practice
