GPs, practice managers and others interested in medical student teaching are invited to an information session with Prof. Karen Dwyer, Deputy Head of School, to discuss the changes. This will be an opportunity to have any concerns addressed, as well as provide input to the new curriculum.

Background:
Deakin University will be moving to an MD model in 2019 in line with medical schools around the country. As part of the curriculum restructure, the General Practice rotation will likely move from 4th to 3rd year. The change presents both opportunities to improve the general practice teaching and learning experience, as well as some challenges. Our general practices play a critical role in delivering the GP curriculum, and ensuring practices are supported and engaged in any changes is essential.
