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 Cutting Edge workshops are accredited by RACGP and ACRRM for the 2020 - 2022 triennium.

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

CTEC has implemented a PPE and COVID-19 Lab Safety Workshop Strategy. If you require further information about CTEC's COVID-19 safety strategies, contact +61 8 6488 8044 or admin-ctec@uwa.edu.au
