The RACGP is Australia’s largest professional general practice organisation and represents urban and rural general practitioners (GPs), representing more than 41,000 members working in or towards a career in general practice.
The RACGP is responsible for defining the nature of the general practice discipline, setting the standards and curriculum for education and training, maintaining the standards for high-quality clinical practice, and supporting GPs in their pursuit of excellence in patient care and community service. We offer our members access to a vast suite of clinical resources, business support tools and education programs, and are proud to advocate for the general practice profession on behalf of all GPs.
