All postgraduate training to further equip doctors for clinical practice in the hospital and community is organised through the Australian medical colleges. This is usually undertaken in conjunction with a paid position recognised by the relevant college. Two useful websites (The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, The Royal Australasian College of Physicians) are shown below:

The Discipline of General Practice offers several academic courses both in coursework and research. These include a Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and Masters in Grief and Palliative Care Counselling (both by coursework and by research). Please note that the Postgraduate Certificate is available entirely online and that it is planned that the Diploma be available on line also in the future. Applications to study as an external student may be made directly to the Grief and Palliative Care Counselling Unit of the Department.
