General practitioners are anything but ‘general’. GPs are medical specialists—they’re often the first port of call, providing an invaluable service within the communities they serve. Ochre Recruitment provides GPs (both VR and Non-VR) with a substantial range of career opportunities in general practice (family medicine).
Doctors practicing as GPs in Australia require Fellowships through the Royal College of General Practitioners RACGP (FRACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine ACRRM (FACRRM); these Fellowships are maintained through CPD training including the Clinical Emergency Management Program (CEMP).
Doctors practicing as Family Medicine doctors in New Zealand must be registered with the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ). NZ doctors then have the option to gain Fellowship with the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (FRNZCGP).
Working in general practice allows you to work wherever you want. As a doctor providing comprehensive primary health care in New Zealand and Australia, you have the opportunity to engage with people across all sectors of society, provide continuity of care as a permanent GP, or crucial cover as a locum where your skills are truly appreciated.
As a general practitioner, you will touch, change, and save lives.
