General Practice Rural Incentives Program
The General Practice Rural Incentives Program (GPRIP) started 1 July 2010, as part of the 2009-10 Rural Health Workforce Strategy. It combines the former Rural Retention Program and the General Practice Registrars Rural Incentive Payment Scheme and consists of three components:
- GPRIP - General Practitioner (GP) Component
- GPRIP - Registrar Component
- GPRIP - Rural Relocation Incentive Grant (RRIG).
The GPRIP aims to encourage GPs to practice in rural and remote communities and to promote careers in rural medicine. The GPRIP will use the Australian Standard Geographical Classification – Remoteness Area (ASGC RA) to determine the remoteness of an area a doctor is working in.
