FPAA National Certificate in Reproductive and Sexual Health for Doctors

This is a nationally accredited certificate by the Family Planning Alliance Australia (FPAA), Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM). It was previously known as the SRH certificate. The practical clinical placement for medical practitioners can be undertaken at either our Hobart or our Launceston site.

Applicants need to have attended the theory course and passed the theory exam prior to commencement of the practical placement. It is strongly recommended the applicant is at least two years post-graduation. Participants are required to attend for seven sessions, with the first involving observation only. During subsequent sessions the participant will conduct consultations under the supervision of an FPT Doctor. The seven sessions can be undertaken at either the Launceston or Hobart clinic, depending on availability. Cat 1 CPD points apply. To enquire or register for a placement please contact srhcertificate@fpt.asn.au.

 

IUD (Intra-Uterine Device) insertion training

Training is provided by accredited staff in Launceston and Hobart in conjunction with FPV (Family Planning Victoria). Applicants need to be competent in women’s health prior to starting the course. Applicants attend for one theory session and usually three clinical sessions, during which time they will receive comprehensive training in the assessment, insertion, routine follow up and management of complications with IUDs. Cat 1 CPD points apply. To enquire or register for training please contact iudtraining@fpt.asn.au.

 

Extended Skills Registrar Placement

Applicants need to have passed all components of the Sexual and Reproductive Health certificate as above, before undertaking registrar placement. In addition, they need to be minimum GPT3 registrars. Registrar placements can be undertaken in all three FPT clinics, depending on availability. Registrars will begin by observing sessions and then, as their competencies develop, will proceed to running their own consultations with supervisor support. Registrars are expected to insert IUDs during their placement with Family Planning Tasmania and appropriate training will be available to registrars if they require it. Registrars are required to undertake MS2 Step training prior to placement and will be involved in the provision of medication termination of pregnancy.
