General practitioners in Australia are registered to practice with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and are regulated by the Medical Board of Australia, supported by AHPRA. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners is the responsible body for developing and maintaining the standards of general practice.
In 2015 there were over 33,000 doctors working as general practitioners as their main filed of medicine. (www. health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/content/General+Practice+Statistics-1)
The Australian health system relies on overseas trained doctors to make up the shortfall in demand for GP services, in particular in rural and remote areas. They represent around 25% of the total in medical professions. Overseas trained doctors considering working in Australia can obtain information at doctorconnect .
General practitioners are welcomed by communities in rural areas of Australia. They are rewarded by financial incentives, a closer-to-nature lifestyle, challenging clinical work, closer doctor-patient relationships and involvement with the local community.
