As a general practitioner within the Primary Health Care community, the PHCI provides you with access to a wealth of educational resources. From interactive workshops, world-class articles and training videos to online tools such as practice assessments and discussion forums you are sure to find support in your professional development.
The PHCI is a unique institution in the Australian medical industry. It is a dedicated and central business resource available to all health care practitioners within the Primary Health Care community, with the focus of supporting you in providing the best possible care to your patients. And this service, as well as most training sessions, are delivered to you free of charge.
Aside from having access to the PHCI, becoming a member of the Primary Health care community offers many benefits, including:
- Unrivalled work/life balance – work full time or part time and in one of 72 locations around the country. Primary offers the ultimate in flexible working conditions.
- Diverse patients – our centres operate in socio-economically diverse communities, so you’ll treat a wide range of patients across acute, chronic and regular consults.
- A rewarding career – Primary offers attractive financial packages and a range of contract options to suit your needs.
- Continuous support – you’ll be working in a centre where it’s easy to confer with other health professionals.

If you have a passion for education, we encourage you to join our community of around 100 GP supervisors. We allow you to concentrate on supervising GP registrars and medical students, while the PHCI will take care of the administrative burden. You will also be reimbursed for teaching the next generation of doctors and will gain access to our regular national Supervisor workshops. These workshops are designed to provide both up-skilling opportunities as well as insight into doctor education relevant to both new and experienced supervisors.
