GP as a career has the breadth, scope and complexity of treating patients of any age and gender and sees patients through all stages of illness. This creates enormous variety and is professionally challenging.


As a GP, you never know what is about to walk through the door. Each day, GPs investigate and analyse how culture, psychological and sociological circumstances affect people’s health and experience of disease. GPs use this understanding to empower patients to lead healthier lives.


“Every day in GP is a challenge. However, facing these challenges every single day with every single patient is what makes general practice a stimulating and fulfilling career, and overcoming these challenges to improve a patient’s health is what keeps me coming back for more.” – Dr Sophie Genoni, WAGPET registrar


Western Australian General Practice Education and Training (WAGPET) is the sole provider of Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program in Western Australia. WAGPET connects GP registrars with experienced practices and supervisors across the state, giving them the real-world experience, insights and knowledge needed to become the best GPs they can be.
