General Practitioners

Training for General Practitioners

Unlike metropolitan-based General Practitioners, doctors working in remote and rural environments may be required to perform surgical procedures because there is limited access to specialists and medical teams.  CTEC's The Cutting Edge workshops cover a comprehensive range of medical and surgical skills to address the wide and varied skills base required by these doctors.

The 2017 Cutting Edge workshops for General Practitioners have been accreditated by RACGP. 

The following list of workshops and educational events are suitable for General Practitioners.
