New EMERG Course approved by RACGP for 40 Category 1 points

We are excited to finally receive approval for RACGP Category 1 points for our education sessions. We have been offering one to two hour educational sessions at various GP practices for the past year, however GPs have only been able to gain limited category 2 points for participation.

We have amalgamated our educational sessions into courses of at least 6 hours duration and included a workshop component with each course. This has enabled us to gain RACGP approval for 40 CME points for the current triennial program. The EMERG course has also been granted approval for rural training grant applications.

Our first Module will be held on Saturday February 21st and includes a Basic Life Support workshop (RACGP CPR compliance) and a chance to participate in an Emergency Simulation excercise. 

At this stage the educational modules are free and will be offered to GP practices in the catchment area of the Northern Hospital, Epping, Victoria. This may change depending on interest and feedback on the courses.

Course details can be found on the RACGP website here. Please click on 'Other' to access course details.

Interested GP practices should contact our EMET PSO Kim Tarzia (8405 8013, or EMET EMERG Course educators Dr Cynthia Lim ( and Dr Megan Robb (
