Training and supporting doctors to work across WA

Western Australia General Practice Education and Training (WAGPET) was the sole provider of the federally funded Australian General Practice Training program (AGPT) in WA. The program has taken doctors seeking to specialise as general practitioners through to fellowship – the highest recognition for a GP.

Funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health, WAGPET delivered training and education to registrars through a structured program, supported by a highly-skilled network of medical educators and supervisors. Each registrar was placed in accredited medical practices in WA’s regional towns and metropolitan locations.
