Applications now open for 2021 posts

The registrar extended skills post is suitable for registrars who have completed GPT2 and is a 6-month position.

Each registrar will attend the theory component of FPAA National Certificate in Reproductive and Sexual Health for Doctors in their first week and sit the examination. This course is provided free to our registrar (usual cost $2895 in 2021), who will also be paid for normal working hours over the course of the week. The registrar will then be required to work across both FPV sites (Box Hill and CBD).

Working hours will be by negotiation and within a service span of hours between 8 am-5 pm Monday to Friday.

The registrar will gain broad clinical experience in reproductive and sexual health issues within a supported environment with weekly tutorial time included.

IUD insertion training is an extra option that registrars can take up during their post.

Each registrar will also be given the opportunity to complete the clinical requirement to obtain their FPAA National Certificate in Reproductive and Sexual Health.

Registrars will develop knowledge and skills in integrated reproductive and sexual health of high relevance to the general practice environment. This includes contraception, STI screening and management, cervical screening, management of menstrual symptoms and pregnancy choices for unintended pregnancy including medication termination of pregnancy. Registrars studying for their FRACGP Fellowship exam are supported by supervisors who are experienced GPs.
