Q: Are simGP courses accredited?

There is a variety of accredited (RACGP QI&CPD and ACRRM PDP) and non-accredited courses available in the simGP course catalogue. Accredited courses are all clearly labelled and details provided of the number of points available for completing a course.
When registering for simGP, GPs who provide details of their RACGP or ACRRM membership will automatically receive points for completing courses that are accredited by their provider.
If a course has not been accredited by the accrediting body of which you are a member, you can still access a certificate of completion for self-reporting purposes.

Q: How will my accrediting body know when I have completed a course?

You do not need to notify the RACGP or ACRRM about your completion of a simGP course. Every month we notify the RACGP and ACRRM of all GP members who have successfully completed an accredited simGP course. Your points will automatically be registered with your accrediting body within 5 weeks of completing the course.
