Adaptability: building an academic workforce with GPs

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The University of Wollongong Graduate

    School of Medicine (UWGSM) opened in

    2007. This is one of a new wave of medical

    schools to enable the more than doubling

    of the number of medical students

    graduating in the period from 2006–2014.1

    However, this rapid expansion has

    exposed a relative paucity of experienced

    medical academics and the regional

    medical schools especially have found

    difficulty immediately attracting a full

    complement of academic staff. These

    schools have therefore sought to recruit

    locally and train staff who vary widely in

    previous experience in teaching.
