Youth Friendly Doctor Training 2017 Program

The YFD Training Program seeks to build the capacity of doctors to communicate more effectively

with young people. With practical sessions delivered by experts, the program also provides

doctors with reference materials, referral links and ongoing support to encompass a holistic youth-friendly practice.

To be accredited as a Youth Friendly Doctor, you must complete both the core module workshops plus one of the elective

workshops. RACGP and ACRRM points will be applied for in 2017.

Rural doctors have the opportunity to participate via the virtual online classroom.

All workshops are held at the AMA (WA)’s Nedlands office. Refreshments from 6pm and workshops commence at

6.30pm sharp. FREE for AMA (WA) members; $50 per workshop for non-members.
