The team that delivers the PG Dip Rural and Provincial Hospital Practice (the Rural Postgraduate Programme) presents the Rural Generalist CME Workshop 2019. We travel to a different part of NZ each time and we are grateful to the local rural clinicians and communities for their generous assistance. This year it will be held in beautiful Taranaki.

The workshop provides up-to-date evidence on topics commonly encountered in rural and remote practice and the sessions will be delivered by the rural doctors that make up the faculty of the Rural Postgraduate Programme as well as local rural and base hospital specialists as well as local rural nurses.

There will be about 15 hours of CME across the three days, equivalent to 15 CME points accredited by RNZCGP.
Workshops are delivered in a small group interactive style to allow for in depth discussion and will focus on rural management issues.
Max no of participants is about 25.
Over the years we have been able to use some of the surplus to provide ongoing support for the training and CME of Cook Islands doctors. The Rural Postgraduate Programme has been funding the costs of attendance of Cook Islands doctors to the CME workshops.
The Rural Postgraduate Programme is also a partner of the Cook Islands General Practice Training Programme.
