RACGP welcomes Victorian Government grants for GPs in training to boost general practice

Royal Australian College of GPs 2 mins read

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has welcomed the Victorian Government’s incentive package for GPs in training to boost the state’s general practice workforce. 

The government today announced details of its $32 million Budget investment to boost the state’s general practice workforce. It includes 400 grants to support GPs in training for both the 2024 and 2025 general practice training intakes.

RACGP Victoria Chair Dr Anita Munoz welcomed the support to boost Victoria’s GP workforce.

“A healthy GP workforce is essential for a healthy Victoria – GPs keep people out of hospital,” she said.

“I’m pleased the government has provided these grants for GPs in training, and I hope it encourages more future doctors into general practice.

“Being a GP is one of the most rewarding careers in medicine. The connection to patients and the community and variety of work in a GP’s day is unique compared with other specialties. We get to see our patients go through all the life stages and milestones, and we’re there not just when they’re sick, we’re helping keep them well.

“I hope our Premier Jacinta Allen will be doing all she can to make sure Victoria’s general practice workforce remains strong, and general practice care is affordable and accessible for everyone in our state.”

The RACGP will be administering the majority of the grants on behalf of the Victorian Government. Eligible 2024 GP trainees will be able to apply for a chance to receive a grant from 5 February. Information about eligibility and how to apply is available on the RACGP website.
