ABSTRACT
The article discusses the barriers facing aspiring general practitioners (GP) in New Zealand. Barriers to recruiting GP trainees include the need to give up salary and losing access to employment benefits upon receiving training bursary, personal expense on GP training, being discouraged by GPs and the absence of a strategy or funding to attract doctors. The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners considers solutions such as the promotion of GP as a career, the GP Rural program and collaboration with the Clinical Training Agency.
