The Discipline of General Practice (DGP) is involved in a wide range of teaching, clinical and research activities. Our multidisciplinary team of General Practitioners and Primary Care Researchers are dedicated to improving the quality of care provided to patients in the community. Many of our staff are actively involved in clinical practice, often working with disadvantaged groups in society.
We enjoy sharing our passion for general practice and primary care with students in the GP rotations and contribute to building the global context in the preclinical curriculum. Through research on models of care, clinical care and issues affecting special interest populations such as Indigenous Australians, refugees, people with non-English speaking backgrounds, the elderly, for instance, we aim to contribute to the evidence base for our discipline and the translation of research to the community where it can make a difference.
