The Master of General Practice (MGP) is an internationally-recognised qualification for practitioners in the field of general practice.

The MGP degree is a one-year full-time (or part-time equivalent) qualification that can be completed as a thesis. Students enter the MGP programme after completing the Postgraduate Diploma in General Practice (PGDipGP).

Students are general practitioners and many enrol on a part-time basis. Graduates from the programme are equipped to work in academic and clinical settings.
