GP Update 5-Day Global Programme 2018

Specially designed for family medicine doctors practising internationally, this comprehensive course provides the renowned GP Update overview of all the latest in primary care – plus extended sessions on diabetes, women’s health, patient behaviour change and managing medically unexplained symptoms

"GP Update courses are fantastic, and offering 5 consecutive days is a really effective use of my CME budget”, Family Medicine Doctor, Saudi Arabia"

Following the success of our first 5-Day course in January 2017, we are delighted to announce a further course will run on 16-20 April 2018.

Bookings are now closed – check back again soon for details of the 2019 Global Programme.

The course is open to GPs / family doctors practising outside of the UK.

It will bring delegates up to speed on all the latest evidence-based updates in primary care and offers 30 hours of consecutive learning. This event has been awarded 30 CPD credits by the Royal Society of Medicine in accordance with its current guidelines.

The course will be held at the Wellcome Trust, a leader of innovative thinking in global health. This inspiring central London location is also home to the highly regarded Wellcome Collection, which explores the connections between medicine, life and art in the past, present and future. As guests of the Wellcome Trust, delegates will have access to behind-the-scenes benefits including a tour of the stunning Bleigiessen glass sculpture. Feedback from the last course was incredibly positive: 100% of delegates said that they would come again and would recommend it to colleagues.

Further information, along with a detailed overview of what will be covered on each day, can be found here.

Bookings will be managed by Primary Care International, a social enterprise launched by Red Whale | GP Update in 2014 to support the strengthening of primary care internationally.

Course fees: £995

Course fees include lunch and refreshments each day. Accommodation, other meals and travel are not included and should be booked separately.

We look forward to welcoming you to London!
