GP Update 5-Day Global Programme 16-20 April 2018

Specially designed for family medicine doctors practising internationally, this comprehensive 5-day 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”

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

Feedback from the 2017 course was incredibly positive: 100% of delegates said that they would come again and would recommend it to colleagues.

The Venue

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.

And as well as being very relevant to clinical practice, we make it entertaining too – without compromising the content! Everything we present is fully referenced – so if you want to do some more research or read the original article you can, but you don’t have to.

  • The GP Update Handbook – comprehensive and fully referenced covering all the most recent research and guidelines pertinent to primary care but interpreted for real life general practice.
  • The Online Handbook – 12 months FREE access to our revitalised, fully searchable and most comprehensive online reference source ever, with more than twice the contents of the hard copy version. (Online access runs from the course date, or the expiry date for existing users).
