Contraception Tutors

Contraception Tutors provide training in contraception for candidates who wish to apply for the ICGP Certificate in Contraception. The Contraception Tutor must assess the candidate and sign the relevant logbook certifying the candidate has completed the necessary training.
Many GP Trainees wish to apply for the Certificate in Contraception during their GP Training years. GP Trainees who wish to complete the practical component of the Certificate of Contraception during their GP Registrar years, can do so in their training practice by completing a logbook under the supervision of a contraception tutor. Therefore, many GP Trainers or doctors working in training practices are interested in becoming a contraception tutor.
