How is JCU making a difference?
Take a look at our JCU GP training stories
Becoming a James Cook University (JCU) GP training supervisor is a wonderful way to give back to the profession, and to experience supervision as a way of enhancing your own clinical knowledge.
Supervisors work closely with registrars to help develop general practice knowledge and skills, enabling registrars to practice independently as a GP.
JCU supports supervisors by providing locally accessible workshops and education sessions, which consolidate and build on educational knowledge and teaching skills.
General Practice Supervisors Australia is the Australian national representative body for GP supervisors.
We offer a range of professional development programs tailored for busy healthcare professionals. Our programs are delivered by leading academics and clinicians and are designed to provide supervisors with the latest skills and knowledge.
Our goal is to train health professionals to be equipped and willing to meet the priority health needs of the population in rural and remote Australia, with a distinct focus on underserved communities, tropical medicine, and the health of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders.
