GP education

As part of our ongoing commitment to general practitioners' education, The Victorian Rehabilitation Centre in conjunction with our Eastern network of hospitals, Knox Private Hospital, Ringwood Private Hospital and Bellbird Private Hospital, offers a wide range of Category 1 & Category 2 RACGP accredited Quality Improvement and Continuing Professional Development (QI & CPD) events throughout the year.

Our education program assists general practitioners to fulfil mandatory accreditation criteria set out by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

General practitioners decide the focus of their learning by choosing topics and speakers suitable to their own practice.
