To the Editor: The decline in the number of National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) scholarships awarded to general practitioners over the past 9 years reflects continuing problems in Australia’s capacity to produce a good base of general practice researchers. Since 1998, 20 GPs have received NHMRC doctoral scholarships; nine of these were granted in 2002 and six were granted after 2002.
