GP Australia supporters
The GP Australia website is the result of collaboration between organisations which contribute to and participate in providing general practice training, and promote specialisation in general practice to junior doctors and medical students. The website has been produced by General Practice Registrars Australia (GPRA) as an initiative of the Going Places Network with funding support from Australian General Practice Training (AGPT).
