Minister for Health, Tanya Plibersek, today announced the appointment of Ms Megan Cahill as the new Chief Executive Officer of General Practice Education and Training (GPET).
“Ms Cahill comes to GPET with over 20 years’ experience in the health sector most recently in ACT Health. I congratulate her on her appointment,” said Ms Plibersek.
GPET’s Chair, Associate Professor Richard Matthews welcomed the appointment.
“Ms Cahill brings a wealth of experience in primary care and broader health policy.
“Her experience at ACT Health and her involvement in health reform as the ACT representative will be invaluable.
She is aware of the challenges facing the general practice sector nationally will be well placed to work with stakeholders in helping grow Australia’s GP workforce.”
Ms Cahill will commence with GPET in February 2013.
Ms Cahill replaces Mr Erich Janssen, who is stepping down after six years as GPET’s CEO. Mr Janssen joined GPET in 2007 and has overseen a period of rapid growth in the Australian General Practice Training and Prevocational General Practice Placements programs.
Associate Professor Richard Matthews acknowledged Mr Janssen’s contribution, “Mr Janssen drove a significant expansion of GP training in Australia and made a major contribution to meeting the Commonwealth Government’s medical workforce reform targets.”
“I have greatly enjoyed my time as GPET CEO and wish Ms Cahill and GPET every success in the important work of training the next generation of Australia’s GPs.” Mr Janssen said.
