AOGP Training Region
AOGP maintains a large region, which provides an extensive array of training opportunities: from remote practice in the north and west of the state, to training in a wide variety of rural regions, through to outer-metropolitan and urban General Practice.
The AOGP region covers a large proportion of metropolitan and rural South Australia. In metropolitan Adelaide, AOGP includes the area from the city north, east, west and inner south. The region includes areas of both high and low socio-economic status, non-English-speaking populations, and GP shortage. Scope of practice is diverse and includes subspecialties in clinical and procedural medicine, opportunities for interdisciplinary team care, and working with specific demographic groups. Some of our teaching practices concurrently teach medical students, junior doctors and Registrars, providing rich opportunities for vertical integration of in-practice teaching.
The rural AOGP region follows Highway One north and west. It includes the Yorke Peninsula, Mid North, Flinders and Far North, and Eyre Peninsula. The Adelaide Hills, Murray Mallee, and Southern Region are shared with Sturt Fleurieu GP Training. Southern is shared because Practices have specifically requested to be part of the AOGP region. AOGP also has a rural Training Post in Alice Springs. The rural AOGP region ranges from inner rural suburbs to popular tourist locations, to industrial and agricultural regions. Our rural region includes Practices that are as close as two hours’ drive from Adelaide, to those that range from three to seven hours’.
