Update in medical specialties for general practitioners

COVID19 Announcement:
Regrettably, we have had to postpone our Update in Medical Specialties for General Practitioners Course for 2020. We hope to run this event in 2021. If you do have any queries, please get in touch with our co-ordinator:


Welcome to Update in Medical Specialties for GPs

This educational meeting for GPs was established in 2017 by the Department of Medicine, Dunedin School of Medicine. Due to overwhelming popularity we shall continue to make this a regular event.

We have organised some of the best teachers in our department to provide updates on topics that you see commonly, with practice tips.

This course is a great way to keep up to date. We provide written materials to take away, and the course will be fun and interactive. It will be a great way to meet colleagues in a collegial atmosphere.

There will be a "meet and greet" dinner on Friday evening, 14 June 2019, at 7.00pm. Register online or email Linda Cunningham, the course events manager, to reserve a place. Please note that dinner is NOT included in the registration cost.

The “ Update in Medical Specialities for General Practitioners” activities have been endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and have been approved for up to 4 CME credits for the General Practice Educational Programme (GPEP) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) purposes.
