New Rural GP Orientation
RDN runs a New GP Orientation Program for all GPs who are new to rural NSW general practice, including Overseas Trained Doctors (OTDs). The two-day introduction to rural general practice is considered valuable preparation for transition into rural NSW medical practice and supports GPs in delivering high quality medical services to rural NSW communities.
Program content includes:
- clinical orientation e.g. management of general patient presentations, introduction to Sexual Health/Family Planning.
- professional orientation e.g. introduction to RDN-managed programs and the NSW Ministry of Health, navigating Medicare and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), cultural awareness, accessing GP support organisations, pathways to Fellowship and exam preparation.
- social orientation e.g. achieving work/life balance in a rural community, Rural Medical Family Network supports.
The following modules from the face-to-face program are available online now in RDN WebEd:
