Scholarship opportunities

RACGP Queensland is offering limited, but heavily-discounted places for Queensland GPs in Modified Monash Model (MMM) 2-7 to complete an online workshop for Rural GPs focusing on Emergency Medicine.

Each scholarship will reduce registration to $50 (full value $395) to complete the course with RACGP. You will be required to register and pay the full amount. Once the workshop has been completed and you receive your certificate of attainment, you will be refunded $345. This program is funded by the generosity of the Dr Bruce Roberts’ bequest, donated to RACGP Queensland to develop and support ongoing education initiatives for GPs living and working in regional, rural and remote Queensland communities.

About the Emergency Medicine for Rural GPs – Online Workshop

Designed and facilitated by experienced rural GPs and emergency specialists, the emergency medicine for Rural GPs workshop aims to enhance rural emergency medicine skills using case scenarios that reflect the challenges faced when living and working in rural and remote communities.

This online workshop takes place on Zoom over four hours and involves four small-group interactive case scenario discussions as well as an exploration of the critical considerations involved in managing rural emergency cases, packaging patients for retrieval, communicating effectively with retrieval teams, debriefing and self-care. All the scenarios included in the workshop are written by experienced rural GPs from actual cases.
