GP Supervisor Workshop


NTGPE hosted 42 GP supervisors on Friday 17 June at the GP supervisor workshop in Darwin.

CEO Dr Richard Zanner opened the workshop and Project Liaison Officer and Larrakia man Curtis Roman provided a Welcome to Country. Dr Zanner reflected on his experience in Africa and an old African proverb ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ using this analogy to describe how up and coming doctors similarly require mentorship, guidance and support from all corners and in particular, he thanked GP supervisors across the Territory for their instrumental role in the training journey of a GP registrar.

Dr Olivia O'Donoghue and Dr Danielle Arabena presented a session on exploring the delivery of effective Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and cultural education for GPs in training. Dr Kishan Pandithage finished the workshop with a session on teaching and assessing clinical reasoning. A big thank you to the organisers, presenters and everyone who attended.

We look forward to hosting the next workshop in Alice Springs in September.
