GP Education

As part of our ongoing commitment to general practitioners' education, Northpark Private Hospital offers a wide range of Category 1 & Category 2 RACGP accredited Quality Improvement and Continuing Professional Development (QI & CPD) events throughout the year. Our education program assists general practitioners to fulfil mandatory accreditation criteria set out by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

Category 2 Activities are held monthly at Northpark Private Hospital showcasing the variety of Specialists available to see your patients. Category 1 Activities, known as Small Group Learning (SGL) are carried out at practices and designed to maximise the benefits of learning together in a small group setting. General practitioners decide the focus of their learning by choosing topics and speakers suitable to their own practice.
