Community Residency Program
The Community Residency Program is administered by Western Australian General Practice Education and Training (WAGPET). The program provides participants with a well-supervised and supported General Practice placement at the same time as undertaking a hospital discipline. Generally, participants spend two to three days a week in an accredited General Practice and the remainder of their time in an outer urban or rural regional hospital.
During placements participants receive education and support from experienced clinical supervisors and a dedicated Mentor. At the same time, they have the opportunity to undertake a wide variety of responsibilities such as managing their own patients; ordering tests, prescribing, billing, developing clinical management plans and providing continuity of care across primary and secondary settings.
