The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) is Australia’s largest professional general practice organisation and represents urban and rural general practitioners. We represent more than 35,000 members working in or towards a career in general practice.
The RACGP's mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of all people in Australia by supporting GPs, general practice registrars and medical students through its principal activities of education, training and research and by assessing doctors' skills and knowledge, supplying ongoing professional development activities, developing resources and guidelines, helping GPs with issues that affect their practice, and developing standards that general practices use to ensure high quality healthcare.
The RACGP has a proud history of achievements, including the development of the Standards for general practices and introducing continuing professional development. The RACGP carries its activities within the following areas of strategic focus:
- Education and training for general practice
- Innovation and policy for general practice.
The RACGP vision statement and strategic overview are used by RACGP Council, committees and staff to ensure the clarity and currency of our strategic priorities.
