RDWA Rural Emergency Skills Program (RESP)

Resident rural GPs providing emergency services in SA’s rural public hospitals can access Australia’s best support for emergency training through RDWA’s RESP delivered by LearnEM. 

RESP’s two-day workshop provides a wide range of simulation-based learning to ensure your education is focussed on your confidence to practise as a highly skilled rural GP. 

You can apply for a position on a RESP course if you are living and practising as a rural GP in an SA rural location, currently credentialed by Country Health SA LHN to provide on-call services and rostered on the local rural public hospital’s emergency on-call service.

RESP is accredited for 40 Cat 1 RACGP points for both the online and practical workshops and 30 PRPD + 30 points MOPS with ACCRM. The workshop meets the criteria for the Rural Procedural Grant for Emergency Medicine, Anaesthesia, Surgery and Obstetrics.

If you are offered and accept a fully funded position, you will be agreeing to meet the conditions of access which includes agreeing to pay for the cost of a position, if you do not complete all requirements.  The terms of acceptance are detailed on the application form. If you have any questions, please contact us.
