GPSA is the national representative body that unites GP supervisors by promoting recognition for registrar supervision work through open and accountable advocacy.


What we do

GPSA is focussed on supporting GP supervisors, practice managers and training practices in their delivery of high quality training across Australia. We do this through development of best practice educational and HR resources, by advocating on our members’ behalf, and undertaking research to drive improvements in the sector and shape policy directions.

We start by gathering information from our various member touchpoints – member enquiries, surveys, participation in webinar discussions, comments on our social media platforms, research interviews, emails. We then analyse the issues facing our membership to identify any gaps in knowledge and set about fixing this through research and a knowledge translation process that takes peer reviewed research outcomes and converts these into relatable, meaningful solutions. These are then added to our extensive repository of resources and constantly reevaluated for relevance and currency under our continuous improvement model.

Thus armed with knowledge of the GP training sector’s needs and priorities, we advocate with government policy makers and stakeholders to ensure GP supervision and training practices are recognised, respected and rewarded. This includes periodically reviewing the National Terms and Conditions for Employment of Registrars (NTCER) with General Practice Registrars Australia (GPRA), a process which is scheduled for the second half of 2022.


Our values

There are four words that encapsulate what GPSA stands for:
our culture, who we are, what we do, and how we do it. These are the core values that have guided the organisation through growth and change, challenge and celebration, and will continue to do so into the future…


Mission And Vision

If our values are the “how”…

The “what” of GPSA’s MISSION can be described as striving to nurture the passion that drives the GP training sector through service, support, research, innovation, education and advocacy; and

The “why” of GPSA’s VISION is the singular goal we work towards tirelessly: to be the voice of a thriving GP training sector that is united, suitably recognised, rewarded, and respected as the cornerstone of this nation’s healthcare system.
