Genetics -As the first point of contact, general practitioners (GPs) are well placed to investigate various presentations that are suggestive of genetic disorders, coordinate long-term care and offer advice regarding genetic screening.
Emergency Medicine -Emergencies are an every day occurrence in general practice. We need to be able to recognise the emergency, assess its severity and put in place a management plan in a relatively short time. In a limited resource environment this may also mean being responsible for managing the emergency until further help becomes available.
Colo-rectal disorders - The Gut Foundation estimates that half of the Australian population experiences some type of digestive issue in any 12-month period.In 2013–14, gastrointestinal disorders in Australia amounted to approximately $3.5 million in admitted patient care.
