SCALES GP Refresher Course

Duration

1 Year, Part-Time

Registration closed.

The ICGP is currently reviewing all courses to determine how and when we will be able to run them. It is highly likely that we will be making significant changes to existing courses as well as incorporating new ones; not all courses will run this autumn. Existing courses that are practical in nature will most likely be put on hold until we can determine how to run them safely.  

All information on courses will be made available as soon as details are confirmed. 

Course summary

This is a refresher course for those wishing to return to work in general practice after a career break and an orientation course for those who had trained in other areas but now wish to work part-time in general practice.
