The Sexual health and family planning Australia (SH&FPA) certificate in sexual and reproductive health is run by Family Planning Queensland (FPQ) and recommended for medical practitioners who wish to increase their knowledge and clinical skills in sexual and reproductive health. The course covers important specialist information, and provides medical practitioners with the opportunity to explore sexual and reproductive health care issues to enhance professional practice. The certificate is particularly suitable for GP registrars, rural or other GP's who frequently deal with women's health, doctors undertaking the RANZCOG Diploma and those who wish to work in primary health, sexual health or family planning clinics.
The whole certificate course is eligible for the Rural and Remote Procedural GP grants from the federal government. These grants provide up to $15,000 per GP per year, for up to two weeks of training. To be eligible for course enrolment, persons must be qualified medical practitioners with a minimum of one year postgraduate experience, Queensland Medical Board registration, and have current indemnity insurance. Scholarships are available to persons working in Indigenous health. The certificate is recognised by RACGP QA & CPD program; ACCRM; RANZCOG; GPEA; and ASCHM.
