The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners has opened applications for doctors wanting to specialise in general practice and/or rural hospital medicine, starting in February 2022.
The two qualifications, which can be undertaken separately, or together to obtain Dual Fellowship, are a mix of clinical and academic post-graduate training for people who already have a medical degree.
Dr Samantha Murton, President of The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners says, “New Zealand always needs more general practitioners and rural hospital doctors, so we wholeheartedly welcome applications from doctors wanting to specialise in a field that delivers a meaningful difference to the health of our people.
“General practice and rural hospital medicine is a vibrant, challenging, and rewarding profession that treats 96 percent of people in the community and we always need more doctors to join us in practice,” she said.
Application to either or both programmes can be made online before 19 April 2021.
