In-practice Support for General Practice Training

SupportGPT is a high-quality, online, in-practice GP Training education resource and tool. It has significant benefits for GP Supervisors, GP Registrars and GPs on the Independent Pathway.

SupportGPT comprises 16 e-learning modules for registrars and Independent Pathway GPs to work through in their own time, guided by a weekly planner. Each module has Supervision activities that registrars prepare before their weekly GP Supervisor teaching sessions.

This helps supervisors by reducing some of the preparation burden for teaching sessions, and providing useful, prepared material for these sessions. Independent Pathway GPs are encouraged to reflect on, and prepare these activities, and then discuss with a mentor or senior colleague.


Medcast offers an enterprise license for GP Training providers interested in enrolling their registrars in SupportGPT. The enterprise package includes a linking of Registrars and Supervisors to enable progress tracking and collaboration on course activities. Medcast provides regular progress reporting on course activities.

Registrars will have access to 16 modules each including 3 hrs teaching time (minimum). SupportGPT includes a Term Planning tool that may be used as a week by week guide to supervision session.
