2018 National Council Wrap-up

We welcomed to 2019 GPSN National Executive team at the 2018 GPSN National Council.

A message from the 2019 GPSN National Chair, Elizabeth Wong

As the end of the year draws near, we celebrate the past year and welcome change as we announce the fresh new faces that will serve on the 2019 GPSN National Council.

The GPSN National Council for the General Practice Student’s Network was held in Melbourne in early October. The GPSN National Council allowed the GPSN National Executive and Local Club Chairs to reflect on the past year and signified a transition point, with the handover of national executive roles and welcoming of incoming local club chairs from every medical school across Australia.

Across the three days, we shared ideas about the direction of GPSN and strategies to boost advocacy for general practice in the medical student community. Overall, it was extremely fruitful and many of the great initiatives discussed are currently in the works to be delivered to you in 2019.

Our cocktail evening, kindly sponsored by GPRA, was another highlight of the weekend. This gave us the opportunity to mingle in an informal setting and meet other like-minded medical students who share our passion for general practice.

Thank you to Anita, the outgoing National Events officer for organising such a wonderful Council. I would also like to thank the outgoing executive, including Megan Bleeze, the 2018 National Chair, for their passion and ongoing commitment in the past few years to shape GPSN into the flourishing network that it is today.

We’re excited about the wonderful events that your local clubs are planning for next year!
