GP training in Brisbane North district

Brisbane North district (featured image)

Experience city life while building your clinical skills in one of Brisbane North’s many accredited training practices.

This is one of four GPTQ training districts and corresponds with the Brisbane North Primary Health Network. The area encompasses the area north of the Brisbane River, from central Brisbane to Caboolture and Ningi. Brisbane North crosses zones three and four, meaning parts of this area are only available to registrars who are on the general pathway.

You just don’t see the conditions in the city that you do in rural areas. Lower socioeconomic areas have a higher burden of disease, with many suffering from chronic illness. You get a lot of pathology walking through the door every day and it’s very interesting. Patients are often keen to be treated locally and not travel to specialist appointments unless absolutely necessary.

Dr Steve Kearney, GP Supervisor at Ningi Doctors

About Brisbane North district

With great restaurants, trendy bars, world-class coffee and a vibrant shopping precinct, Brisbane North is a great choice for doctors who love urban life. But don’t make the mistake of thinking Brisbane North is all about the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s a short drive to idyllic mountains, forests, beaches and national parks.

And although Brisbane North is predominantly an urban area, it has its own rural community. Choose a practice on the outskirts of the district for a balance of rural health and urban living.

Training practices

Brisbane North’s training hospitals are Caboolture Hospital, Redcliffe Hospital, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, and Prince Charles Hospital. There are 85 general practices available for placement, each offering a unique experience and areas of special interest. Many practices have a special focus on Indigenous health.

Medical educators

In addition to our GP supervisors, there are six medical educators in the Brisbane North district who mentor our registrars through their GP training: Dr Amelia DuhsDr Karen Savery, Dr Kathie James, Dr Kate Krimmer, Dr Lai Shan Lowe and Dr Michelle Warman

Primary health network

The Brisbane North PHN offers a range of healthcare and support programs for people in the community, including aged care services, mental health initiatives and Indigenous health care. There’s also a program called Team Care Coordination, which provides registered nurses available to help GPs deliver local services.

Make a meaningful contribution to health care in your clinical placements by taking a position in Moreton Bay North. This region, including Morayfield, Caboolture and Deception Bay, is recognised as having lower socioeconomic status and poorer health outcomes than other parts of the region. The area needs more health professionals to improve access to health services throughout the region. Find out more here: www.brisbanenorthphn.org.au
