Sam started off by highlighting that the College is following Medical Council of 麻豆视频入口 (MCNZ) updated recertification requirements while also making a programme that is streamlined, relevant, efficient and easy to use for members.

The intention of Te Whanake is to be an evolving programme that is member focused so we welcome your feedback 鈥 please send queries and comments through to cpd@rnzcgp.org.nz
