This national certificate course covers the range of the reproductive and sexual health issues that are common in general practice.

Course Dates:

The theory course is held from 8.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday

Please note: The course may be cancelled if there are insufficient enrolments by the last date for registrations.  If this occurs, participants will be notified as soon as possible, and a full refund will be made.

Course Summary:

This Certificate course covers reproductive and sexual health issues at a post graduate level.

The course is accredited for QI points by the RACGP and ACRRM. It is held in high esteem and thought to be very practical in nature, giving participants the confidence and skills to work at a high level in this area. Different to the DRANZCOG, the course focuses on primary care aspects of sexual health, a core aspect of both general practice and specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology.

The theory component is run over a week, although participants can choose to attend individual days if they wish to. The clinical component is seven sessions of 3.5 hours each.
