Rural communities rely on General Practitioners for health services. The NSW pathway for rural general practice training is designed to provide medical graduates with a structured training program which balances community general practice exposure with rural hospital experience.

The proposed training pathway, outlined in the discussion paper, seeks to encourage increased numbers of medical graduates to choose rural and procedural general practice as their preferred training and career choice. A structured and supported training experience is fundamental to trainees choosing rural and procedural general practice and going on to provide health services in rural communities and hospitals.
