GP Academic Post Registrars

GP Academic Post Program

The Department welcomes enquiries from eligible GP registrars who wish to apply for an Academic Post. An Academic Post provides exposure to research and the academic environment and encourages GP registrars to incorporate academic work into their careers. We work closely with registrars and their Medical Educator to develop an individualized learning plan to support success through the academic post program.

The research project is an important component of the academic post. GP registrars are encouraged to work within one of our research themes however, we are able to assist registrars to develop a project that addresses an important clinical or education question they have identified in their clinical practice.

As an Academic Post registrar at Monash University you will:

  • Have supervision from international and national leaders in academic primary care in a supportive and collaborative academic environment
  • Join our graduate research program, together with postgraduate research fellows, PhD and honours students, and visiting international scholars
  • Work within one of our areas of research strength to develop research skills as part of your individualized learning plan; linked with an experienced research supervisor who will support you through all stages of the research project
  • Gain skill and confidence as an educator, under the supervision and mentorship of one of our experienced GP educators, while teaching in the Monash medical program
