A doctor registered in a vocational scope must participate in an approved continuing professional development programme to maintain competence and be recertified each year.

General Practice

General Practice is an academic and scientific discipline with its own educational content, research, evidence base and clinical activity, and a clinical speciality orientated to primary care. It is personal, family, and community orientated comprehensive primary care that includes diagnosis, continues over time, is anticipatory as well as responsive.

Rural Hospital Medicine

Rural hospital medicine is determined by its social context, the rural environment: the demands of which include professional & geographic isolation, limited resources and special cultural and sociological factors. It is invariably practiced at a distance from comprehensive specialist medical and surgical services and investigations. A broad generalist set of skills, knowledge and attitudes are needed to deliver optimum patient outcomes in rural hospitals. Unlike rural general practice, rural hospital medicine is orientated to secondary care, is responsive rather than anticipatory and does not continue over time.
