Training with CoastCityCountry General Practice Training

CCCGPT is committed to delivering flexible and quality training to the registrars in our region. We pride ourselves on our ability to tailor training programs to suit the individual registrar. We understand that each Registrar comes to us with their own unique set of circumstances and these will be taken into account during the course of your training.

We appreciate the difficulties that can be associated with juggling parenthood and educational requirements and we aim to minimise these by providing you with accommodation and babysitting options at educational events. CCCGPT provides financial support to all Registrars to assist with training costs.

Your training experience is only limited by your imagination!

CCCGPT Registrars are able to choose their own practice placements throughout their training from a pool of longstanding and accredited teaching practices in the region.

Additional Training Opportunities with CCCGPT

As well as providing quality General Practice placements throughout our region, our urban and large regional centres offer additional training opportunities in Aboriginal Health, Travel Medicine, Refugee and Prison Health.

Regional Centres support advanced training, with procedural terms available in Surgery, Obstetrics, Mental Health, Anaesthetics, Emergency Medicine, and Expedition Medicine (based in the ski fields). Most of our rural practices provide opportunities to exercise VMO rights at the local hospital.

Academic research and teaching posts are also available through affiliations with the medical faculties of the University of NSW, Australian National University and the University of Wollongong, which can be undertaken in urban and rural/regional settings.
