GP Education: FREE Clinical Placement Program in Cancer Survivorship


Enhance your ability to care for people living with and beyond cancer: 

General practitioners are invited to attend a free oncology placement at one of eight Victorian Hospital across specialist clinics including breast, geriatric, palliative and gynae-oncology to improve their skills and knowledge in cancer management and network with local oncology specialists.

 “Having local GPs attend our specialist clinics has been wonderful – it helps to break the GP-hospital divide” –Breast and General Surgeon (2018)

 “As a GP, I found this to be the most valuable program I have been involved in for years and the first to be offered in this area of medicine. Any GP would benefit from doing the attachments as we will all have patients with cancer- and long term survivorship will be an important evolving area for us all.” –GP (2018)
