Postgraduate papers Primary Health Care and Travel Medicine

Our postgraduate papers have scheduled 2-day Block Courses in addition to other evening and sometimes half day Zoom meetings which vary by paper. Full attendance at Block Courses is expected. Depending on the paper, Block Courses may be held face to face in Wellington or virtually via Zoom.

PHRC 702 Wilderness and Expedition Medicine is a little different, this paper has a 4-day residential held at Hillary Outdoors over Labour Weekend. Attendance at the residential for this paper is a course requirement.

If you require further information regarding Block Course dates or have other questions about Block Courses please contact us.
