General Practice

HETI’s Psychiatric Medicine course has been invaluable and the material covered is relevant, interesting and applicable to everyday general practice. Very highly recommended!

Dr Rebecca Kuehn, GP student

The Psychiatric Medicine program for General Practitioners has been developed for practicing General Practitioners (GP) and GP Registrars in liaison with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

This contemporary recovery-oriented program fosters collaboration with other medical specialists including Psychiatry Trainees and Rural and Remote Medicine Specialists, with assessment tasks aligned to the specialisation of General Practice.

Tailored to General Practitioners

HETI‘s Psychiatric Medicine Framework is designed to provide GPs with the opportunity to extend their mental health knowledge and skills beyond those obtainable through short courses, or skills training workshops alone.

The courses have been designed from their inception to meet the needs of GPs and topics are mapped to the Five Domains of General Practice.

Courses within the Psychiatric Medicine framework are accredited for professional development by RACGP. The Graduate Certificate is allocated 60 Category 1 points in RACGP QI & CPD Program for the 2017-2019 triennium.

Who should apply?
