FPT is a not for profit organisation specialising in sexual and reproductive health and women’s health services.

We are always keen to hear from VR doctors with an interest in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Women’s Health who are interested in working one or more sessions per week in one of our clinics.

Why work with FPT?

FPT doctors really do make a difference in the lives of women, particularly those that are disadvantaged or marginalised. Our core clients are under 21, those living with a disability, Concession Card holders, Indigenous Australians, and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

FPT is one of the few organisations in the state offering women medication termination of pregnancy (MTOP). By working for FPT, you can play an important role in providing safe access to medication termination within an environment set up to support women throughout the MTOP process.

FPT GPs work in a collegial and supportive environment alongside a state-wide Medical Director who is on-hand for mentoring and support.

Our work is sociable and flexible, with all doctors working part-time, from 1 x 3.5 hour clinic per week. No on-call, weekend or after hours work makes FPT clinics ideal for combining with general practice, family life or achieving a good work-life balance.

FPT provides ongoing professional development opportunities to its GPs in all areas of sexual and reproductive health, including IUD insertion training and Medication Termination of Pregnancy provision.

Our GPs receive a competitive hourly rate + superannuation + salary packaging (up to $18k tax free).

Our clinics are in Glenorchy, Launceston and Burnie in the beautiful, natural state of Tasmania, which also offers an attractive lifestyle and low cost of living compared to many Australian cities while being just a 1 hour flight from Melbourne.

 

Requirements for working at FPT

1. Sexual and Reproductive Health Certificate

All doctors working at FPT must have successfully completed the FPAA Certificate in SRH for Doctors.

This consists of a theory component, theory examination and seven practical sessions where the applicant’s competencies are assessed.

The theory component typically involves a 4/5 day face-to-face course. It can’t currently be completed in Tasmania but is provided by various Family Planning organisations interstate. Information about the course from Family Planning Victoria, Melbourne, can be found here.

For doctors intending to work at FPT following successful completion of the Certificate, the seven mandatory practical sessions are provided by us at no cost.

2. All FPT GPs insert IUDs and must undertake FPT IUD insertion training, which involves one theory session and usually three clinical sessions.

3. All FPT GPs are involved in the provision of Medication Termination of Pregnancy (MTOP) and must undertake MS-2 Step online training.

4. All FPT GPs must hold Vocational Registration (VR).
