You will study 3 specially selected modules in minor and major illnesses and trauma, and Consultation and Physical examination skills. These 3 modules have been popular in the past with primary care, pre-hospital and emergency care clinicians and are now comprised as one award in order to maximise your learning.

You will need to identify a facilitator in practice for HPCD7050 Consultation and Physical Examination Health Assessment Skills.
