The RACGP has provided a submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Migration’s inquiry—Migration, Pathway to Nation Building. The inquiry is considering numerous areas related to Australia’s migration system and the respective influences to nation building.
As Australia’s largest representative body for GPs nation-wide, the RACGP has a key role in advocating for sustainable general practice workforce solutions and recognising the important contribution of international medical graduates (IMGs) to the delivery of quality healthcare to Australian communities.
Our submission provides an opportunity to advocate for Australia as the GP destination of choice for suitably qualified IMGs and improving support to GPs and their families to live and practise in Australia.
