Prevocational GP Placement Program (PGPPP)
The Prevocational GP Placement Program (PGPPP) offers participants a hands-on experience in a primary care setting and procedural medicine in a well-supervised training post where they are involved in direct care of patients from local communities and the opportunity for follow-up care. The Program aims to provide a positive experience to help participants make an informed career decision and better understand the relationship between primary and secondary health care.
Training posts throughout the state are managed for Australian College of Rural and Remote (ACRRM) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) by either Western Australian General Practice Education and Training (WAGPET) or the School of Primary, Aboriginal and Rural Health Care (SPARHC), depending on their location.
