RACGP Rural was formed in 1992 when the RACGP recognised the need for a rural voice. Rural issues and concerns are represented on RACGP Council, faculty boards and committees. Board members are representative of each state and territory in Australia, registrars, international medical graduates, the National Rural Health Students Network and General Practice Student Network.
Rural and remote communities across Australia have equitable access to high quality primary care.
RACGP Rural supports and advocates for general practitioners working in rural and remote Australia. RACGP Rural is committed to addressing rural disadvantage focusing our efforts toward strategies which lead to more equitable access to healthcare.
Integral to this key aim is the capacity of general practice and we strive to ensure our members are well placed and have access to appropriate training and professional development to bring about lasting change in rural communities through addressing health need.
Ensure a sustainable, well-supported rural general practice workforce to competently and confidently address the needs of rural and remote communities.
