Welcome to CVC’s Virtual Learning Portal

The CVC Virtual Learning Portal is packed with resources designed to keep your skills sharp and your knowledge current.

Virtual Learning Portal.

Heart disease remains Australia’s biggest killer.

GPs are ideally placed to offer primary and secondary prevention to patients at risk of a cardiac event and to ensure the right patients are referred on to a cardiologist.

GPs need ongoing education and training to do that vital job well. Yet, many CME/CPD opportunities have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

That’s why CVClinics has created this online education portal.

As a GP committed to honing your cardiac skills, you can use this portal to:
– Register for upcoming webinars
– Watch past webinars
– Access CVClinic’s extensive range of educational material.

Ultimately, this portal exists to help you, help your patients.
