• Summary The authors were appointed by the Federal Government of Australia to investigate General Practitioner (GP) training and advise on the need for and format of alternative training routes. A number of strengths were identified in respect of the training arrangements which were in place, but so were a number of peculiarities. There was a good case for alternatives to be devel? oped and several recommendations were made. We proposed a number of alternative training programs, using a 'core plus options' format, accessible through distance learning and avail­ able to a wide variety of potential GPs. This paper outlines the principal research methods used, the main findings and some of the conclusions reached. ()
