Medical graduates pursuing a career in general practice can register their interest in training with the RACGP to keep updated and supported throughout the application process by receiving:

Enhancing the practice ownership experience
The Practice Owners National Conference 2022 will take place on Saturday and Sunday 14–15 May at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart.
 
Now, more than ever, the sustainability of general practice determines its success. With a stream dedicated to practice sustainability and management, the 2022 Practice Owners National Conference will help ensure GPs make their practice stand the test of time.
 
For GPs who are current practice owners or managers, or looking to move into practice ownership, the advisory group brings a valuable program that will help navigate challenges facing practice owners today.
 
The full conference program and registrations are available online.
 
Medico-legal risks and low-value care
NPS Medicinewise has recently launched a new online learning module addressing medico-legal risks and low-value care.
 
The module covers core legal knowledge to help practitioners avoid low-value care and recommends communication strategies to improve patient consent and decision-making processes.
 
It incorporates findings from a recent Australian research project on medico-legal aspects of low-value care, which involved in-depth interviews with medical practitioners and healthcare consumer representatives.
 
The training includes self-assessment exercises for practitioners to reflect on their attitudes, knowledge and clinical scenarios based on actual legal cases.
 
This activity has been approved for two CPD Activity points under the RACGP CPD Program for the 2020−22 triennium.
