Modules

All modules are mapped to the ACRRM curriculum and are authored by specialists and ACRRM members. Individual modules vary in style and duration and include standard asynchronous modules through to online communities of practice.

The majority of modules feature a case based approach to learning, where participants develop their analytical and reflective skills through the use of real-life scenarios.

Some of the latest modules suitable for medical students and junior doctors include: 

  • Cultural awareness [more]
    We have developed an online module that promotes cultural awareness and provides opportunities to understand medical practice from an indigenous perspective and to work towards improving your indigenous patients’ confidence and wellbeing.
  • Tele-Derm National [more]
    Tele-Derm is an internationally recognised online resource designed primarily to allow rural doctors to submit de-identified cases for free specialist advice on diagnosis and management by Dermatologist Dr Jim Muir. Online case studies, tips and cases of the week are also available.
  • Basics in Radiology Series [more]
    A series of four modules on the principles of radiology. It is not possible to teach all the patterns of radiology. The aim of the series is to teach some simple radiological principles and to show how they can be used to reach a diagnosis by a process of logic. The series takes you through the basics of how an X-ray or CT image is produced and how to interpret the images.
  • Introduction to Telehealth [more]
    This module was developed by the College in consultation with members of the ACRRM Telehealth Advisory Committee (ATHAC) and the ACRRM Clinicians Working Group. It was developed in parallel with the ATHAC Telehealth Standards Framework and the ACRRM Telehealth Guidelines, which have been referenced to the major international and Australian standards/guidelines for telehealth.
