Webinars

It can be challenging for health professionals to access relevant education and training, so that’s why we run a popular regular webinar series designed specifically for health professionals. The topics are chosen based on requests we receive, so if there is a topic you would like, please let us know. There is a mix of daytime and evening sessions, and although we encourage live participation, sessions are recorded for those unable to watch live.

Our education programme is endorsed by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) – Learn more.
