Why choose general practice?

General practice is one of the most diverse areas of medicine in which to practice. There are many benefits to working in general practice, including:

  • Being part of individuals’ and families’ lives
  • Having a sense of community
  • Intellectually stimulating work
  • Experiencing a range of patient presentations
  • Being the first to diagnose
  • Providing holistic care
  • Opportunities to work or specialise in a range of areas including public health, Indigenous health, mental health treatment, sports medicine and minor surgery
  • The chance to provide immediate and long-term treatment.

We have many real-life GP stories from our medical educators on our website to inspire you. We encourage you to read them as they share the many reasons why they love being a GP.
