  • Following on from Part 1 of the RVTS Grand Round : Derm “Stump the Chump” with Associate Professor Jim Muir, we present Case 2 from the webinar earlier this year.

  • The 2021 RVTS Grand Round focussed on Dermatology with a round of “Stump the Chump” with living legend and well known QLD dermatologist, Associate Professor Jim Muir.  Various derm cases were presented to Jim to determine the diagnosis. Needless to say, Jim was spot on each time, and we all learned from his insights and […]
  • This month, in our final excerpt from the “Tropic Medicine” webinar, we look at Rickettsial Diseases with Prof McBride. This is part 3 in a 3 part series. We’ve discussed Melioidosis and Leptospirosis and Dengue Fever in the previous excerpts.
  • The first RVTS workshop of the year was held as a virtual event during April.  Registrars are located all over Australia, and were able to join the workshop from their homes or practices, joining in for high quality training without the risks of travel in our current climate.  The 3 day event for the 3 […]

The ME team was recently interviewed, and each one was asked to identify something that would contribute to registrar success in general practice training in 2021.
  • The 2021 training year has just begun at RVTS, and we’ve caught up with Dr Pat Giddings, RVTS CEO, GP and GP Obstetrician, to talk about the year that’s been and the year ahead.  Dr Giddings shares what he believes makes RVTS successful, and gives his “TOP TIP” for Registrars for 2021.
