Course prerequisites

The RCGP has recently launched a recertification course which is recommended as an evidence based update for graduates of our level 1 and 2 drug misuse courses. We would recommend individuals who graduated from our certificate courses 5 or more years previously to consider this update as excellent evidence of maintaining the required competencies in clinical substance misuse as it covers all of the hot topics facing clinicians today as well as being aligned with the new Orange guidelines

Please note: Delegates should have completed and gained a certificate for RCGP Certificate in the Management of Drug Misuse - Part 1.

Failing to prove this will automatically disqualify registered delegates from the course.
