You will work alongside a small team of down to earth people who are dedicated to what they do. We have a strong collaborative work environment, working together to support our GP Supervisor members in the best way possible. You will have variety in your role, being able to contribute in different areas across the organisation and build your skills and experience. We value our people, and encourage a positive work environment with employees, management and our members. We want you to be proud of both the work you do and of who you work for.
We aim to support the vital contribution supervisors make to providing quality training for the next generation of family doctors, and make sure their work is rewarded and recognised. We do this by providing training resources, lobbying and working with health sector policy makers and representatives, responding to needs of our members and negotiating the National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars (NTCER) between supervisors and registrars on behalf of supervisors. We also undertake research relevant to GP Supervision to inform evidence based policy decision making in the sector.
Whilst most of our funding is obtained through government funding, our organisation is independent from government and has its own independent voice. This, and the small size of the organisation enables us to move quickly and be responsive to our members and their needs, delivering services to support them. Whilst we do have obligations to fulfill for our funders, we have a certain degree of flexibility to develop creative and different approaches to meet the needs of our membership.
General Practice Supervisors Australia (GPSA) is the national representative body that unites GP Supervisors by promoting recognition for GP and registrar supervision work through open and accountable advocacy. As a peak national body for GP Supervisors in Australia, we have close to 6,000 members, and our website achieves over 130,000 downloads of our resources every year. We meet regularly with key policy and decision makers to discuss policies and practices in the GP Training environment. The work that we do makes a real contribution to building a sustainable GP workforce both now and into the future.
