The College is aware of the competing demands on your time and has developed innovative education: E-learning, courses, workshops, CME small group meetings, faculty events and College conferences to respond to your educational needs to learn at a time and pace that suits you.
The CME Small Group network provides an opportunity for meeting your continuing medical education needs by attending small group meetings organised and run by a local CME tutor. This allows you to keep up-to-date within a friendly, well structured format. These meetings with colleagues in active general practice from your area take place once per month and allow peers to discuss and learn about topics relevant to modern general practice.
A key role of the College is to facilitate and assist members to meet the requirements of the Register of Medical Specialists - General Practice Division. For more information and access to your Professional Competence Personal Folder, follow the link below.
If you need to locate an article, reference, or publication you can contact the ICGP library staff. An online library catalogue is also available on the ICGP website. Forum, the Journal of the ICGP, is published monthly and the full text is also available online.
The College provides information and support to members wishing to pursue research in general practice. Funding for approved research is available through the College Research & Education Foundation.
Given that GPs tend to work in isolation without the supports which exist for larger, more structured business organisations, the ICGP has developed a range of projects, programmes, and courses to support its members in the practice:
Establishing in Practice
The College's Network of Establishing GPs project supports GPs in the early years of their career and establishing in practice.
Information, advice, training and consultancy on all aspects of practice management and development.
The Health in Practice Programme promotes good physical health, occupational health and psychological health and well being for GPs and their families.
The ICGP Quality in Practice Committee (a subcommittee of the Education Committee) works on developing quality guidelines for use in the practice.
The GPIT project provides support, training and advice to GPs with ICT issues.
