Education

RDGP coordinate professional networking and education through the implementation of an annual education calendar; enabling medical professionals to maintain their continuing professional education points.

A multidisciplinary approach is undertaken to ensure education is relevant to GPs, Nurses, Allied Health and other health professionals.

RDGP are accredited to attract GP continuing professional education points through the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).

RDGP undertake a triennial education needs assessment of RDGP membership which informs topics and presenter selection. Expert presenters and visiting medical specialists are attracted from across the country to provide education and networking opportunities.

The education calendar is tailored to local needs and overseen by the Regional Education Committee. The Regional Education Committee is a volunteer committee that prioritises the local education needs and oversees the integrity of the RDGP education program.

Local representatives include:

  • Dr Andrew Searles (Chair)
  • Dr David Rosenthal
  • Dr Raphael Torome
  • Dr Ian Gartley
  • Sharlene Milich (RN)
  • Kym Bament (Practice Manager)
  • Trish Vogel (CEO RiverDocs ED)
