The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) is the UK body responsible for setting the standards for general practice education, training, Revalidation and the MRCGP examination.

The online eLearning materials in this site are developed and badged by the experienced eLearning team at the RCGP. Since 2008, the team have developed and published a range of high quality RCGP online courses and certifications to support CPD and revalidation. The intended audience for our eLearning materials are GPs and primary healthcare professionals, GP Specialty Trainees and GP Educators. Our materials are written to reflect UK practice.

All RCGP courses currently go through a peer-review process and quality assurance check to ensure they are of the highest quality. However, best medical practice can change over time and it is the user's own responsibility to make his or her own professional judgement before applying the information contained in these educational materials to patient care.

If you would like to find out more about our eLearning programme, or are interested in working with the RCGP to develop new eLearning updates or courses, please contact the RCGP eLearning team.

The RCGP eLearning department won Silver in 'Best learning technologies project – UK public and non-profit sector’ category at the Learning Technologies Awards 2017.  The judges awarded the Online Learning Environment stating “this (RCGP eLearning Platform) is an excellent, valuable and behavioural shifting free resource available with a smart and effective approach to CPD.”

With nearly 100,000 users accessing the resources, the eLearning programme continues to be one of the most popular resources offered by the College based on recent membership surveys.
