Certificate of Primary Care Dermatology

Important Message

We’re excited to announce that the Certificate of Primary Care Dermatology is currently undergoing a full content and technology review. For this reason we are currently unable to accept new registrations for all modules with the exception of modules 4 and 5 which directly relate to the face-face workshop. Registrations will open again with the launch of the 2020 – 2022 triennium.

For those already enrolled, you can continue to use the existing platform. For all past and current enrolments, you will be given access to the new online platform once it is launched.

If you have any queries please contact us at dermcert@racgp.org.au


This comprehensive course trains general practitioners (GPs) to diagnose and optimally manage common skin conditions (including skin cancer) and is open to all GPs and GP registrars. The course content is currently being reviewed and updated by the RACGP in partnership with Dermatology specialists.

If you experience technical difficulties with any of the Certificate of Primary Care Dermatology modules, please consider the following:

  • Don’t leave the activity open in the background if you are unable to complete it in a single sitting. Exiting the activity once every hour allows your answers to be saved and bookmarked in the system so that you can return to the same spot and continue on without errors. You may need to wait a few seconds before re-launching the activity so that the system has time to store your answers.
  • Provide short answers when a question asks you to input text. Multiple lines for a single answer field increase the chance of the activity experiencing errors.

Please note that the Certificate of Primary Care Dermatology modules are not compatible with tablets or smartphones.

If you experience an error with any of these modules, please contact us via email at dermcert@racgp.org.au.
