Unique regional experiences for GPEP1 registrars 

College news
6 September 2018

First year General Practice Education Programme (GPEP1) registrars from all over Aotearoa New Zealand have been participating in unique local education days, that form part of their Māori health training.

Māori health training is as an opportunity for GPEP1 registrars to understand how they can best meet the health needs of Māori, and learn about the health inequalities that exist between Māori and non-Māori. 

The learning programme is split between a noho marae (one-day workshop and marae visit), and training that is carried out in-practice throughout the rest of the year. 

Check out photos from some of the noho marae, also known as Māori Health Days, that have been held around the country so far.
