Medical Professional Development

About the Program

To support your continued learning, our Medical Professional Development program enables rural GPs to undertake a wide range of clinical upskilling close to home, reducing the need to travel and leave your practice and community.

These informative workshops are tailored to you in rural practice by experienced rural specialists. Topics have been identified by you, SA’s rural GPs, as areas of interest essential to your practice in your rural communities and are updated every 12 months, ensuring you have access to the most relevant clinical development available.

If there is a topic that you would like to explore and is important to you in your rural practice, please let us know.
