Benefits of becoming a GPSA member

GPSA is supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program. This support enables us to provide best practice educational resources and undertake policy and advocacy work based on solid research. 

Through the transition to College-Led Training and beyond, we will continue to represent the needs of supervisors, practice managers and the wider teams who support GP training in the general practice clinical learning environment (GPCLE) . This includes consultation with members like you to negotiate the National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars (NTCER), working with stakeholders on your behalf, and inviting your participation in research to drive improvements for the sector. We have developed almost 1,000 useful resources and run highly relevant webinars and workshops throughout the year.

As well as advocacy, research and training, GPSA produces a newsletter every month, keeping members informed with the latest news and information, and invites members to keep us updated with issues and opportunities via phone and email.

All memberships are free of cost.

There are three ways that individuals may become members of General Practice Supervisors Australia. Ordinary and Honorary Membership options are available for people working in training practices, and our Stakeholder Membership covers other members of the GP training sector.

All memberships are free of cost.

ORDINARY MEMBERS (GP SUPERVISOR & PRACTICE MANAGER IN TRAINING PRACTICE)


Eligibility: (a) is an active Supervisor or a Practice Manager in a practice committed to the facilitation of the supervision of prevocational doctors, medical students and GP Registrars, especially within the AGPT program and its successor programs; and (b) is in agreement with the objects of GPTA. From November 2022, ordinary membership and voting rights includes practice managers actively involved in and, like their GP supervisor counterparts, committed to improving the quality of training for general practice in Australia. View our constitution here.

HONORARY MEMBERS (NON GP SUPERVISOR)


Eligibility:
(a) Is, desires to be, or has been involved in GP training in any capacity; and
(b) is in agreement with the objects of GPTA.

Honorary Memberships are available to people who are not supervising GPs, but for people who work in General Practice training environments e.g. GPs (non-Supervisor / past Supervisor), GP Registrars, Practice Nurses or other team members who are supportive of the Supervisors in their workplace. We encourage supporters of GP Supervisors to become Honorary Members.
