GP Courses and Events

The GP School runs a number of educational events to support our trainees and Primary Care Educators. The School is committed to expanding our Primary Care Educator network and there are training courses for all levels of new and established educators. The Spring Symposium and Autumn Seminar provide faculty development for all our educators with the focus on inter-professional education. The GP Open day is an opportunity for trainees and educators to recognise achievement and share ideas and innovations with advice on future GP careers.
