Reflective exercise

Last revised: 19 Jan 2023

Reflective exercise

Reflective practice is an important aspect of continuing professional development and effective self-directed lifelong learning. It can help clinicians to review and improve their own practice by identifying their strengths and weaknesses and specific learning needs. The reflective exercise has been designed to explore and assess the competency of professionalism and general practice systems and regulatory requirements. The activity involves discussion of challenging general practice encounters relating to these competency areas with the registrar’s medical educator. It is recommended that this activity takes place early in GPT3.
