General Practice and Primary Care
Continuing professional development (CPD)
General Practice and Primary Care at the University of Glasgow currently offers the following CPD courses, suitable for primary care/family medicine professionals (e.g. GPs, family practitioners, nurses, managers, allied health professionals, pharmacists and social workers) or those with an interest in this field:
All courses are offered on a stand-alone basis for CPD and delivered as 11 x 2.5-hour sessions. These are not didactic lectures but a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops, discussions and case studies. Each course is SCOTCAT accredited with a value of 20 points. Assessment depends on the individual course, but is a 3000-word essay or written assignment. Students who wish to be awarded these points have to complete summative assessment assignments. All students are encouraged to complete the groupwork assignment even if they are not being assessed. Students who are not seeking to be awarded SCOTCAT points may choose to complete the assignments if they so wish.
They are delivered at General Practice and Primary Care, a short walk from the main University of Glasgow campus.
The cost of each course undertaken during 2011/2012 is £528.
