Owl%20image.PNGAt the RCGP you are part of a community.  A community that provides its members with networks for support and advice, a collective voice for GPs and opportunities for innovation and research.  It’s a community that values your learning and wants to ensure you’re always learning, throughout your career as a GP.

Developed by GPs for GPs, the college offers many high-quality educational resources. As well as supporting your learning, these resources are a great way to boost your CPD credits. As an RCGP member, you can also benefit from accessing the majority of our resources for free.

One example of free resources is the RCGP’s series of Educational Libraries. These libraries are published by the RCGP in partnership with specialist organisations and can be accessed here.

There are currently two topics in this brand new resource, with many more being added over the next year. As an introduction to the Educational Libraries, this blog post outlines some of the ways you can utilise this resource to meet your learning needs.

How can these libraries help me?

The Educational Libraries provide you with a great opportunity to explore other aspects of general practice.

Supporting your CPD, these libraries bring together national guidelines and educational resources such as eLearning, journal articles and podcasts that are relevant to GPs and other primary healthcare professionals. Information on relevant courses you can attend are also included to help you learn from peers, gain networking opportunities and to really get the most out of being a GP.
