Australian General Practice Colleges

      There are two general practice colleges in Australia. For the other (non-general practice) Australian colleges click here.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP)

    The RACGP was formed in 1958 with the stated aim "to improve the health and wellbeing of all Australians by supporting GPs, as well as the medical education of the undergraduate, recent graduate, and those already in practice".

The Australian College of Remote and Rural Medicine (ACRRM)

    ACRRM was formed in 1997 by the Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA). Its aims are to

  • deliver rural and remote medicine as a broad but discrete form of general practice
  • provide well-designed vocational training and continuing medical education for rural doctors, and
  • address the shortage of rural and remote doctors in Australia, by providing them with a separate and distinctive professional body
