16 July 2015

Notice of RACGP policy update

This notice is to advise of the publication of a new Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) policy: the Educational Misconduct Policy.

The Educational Misconduct Policy replaces the former Academic Misconduct Policy.

The new policy provides the essential information interested parties need to know about Educational Misconduct in a concise format using plain English.

The policy:

  • defines what constitutes Educational Misconduct and when investigations will occur
  • explains the principles that guide RACGP investigations and decision making regarding alleged Educational Misconduct
  • provides a framework for determining the appropriate penalty following a finding of Educational Misconduct.

The policy document can be accessed via the Education Services policies and procedures page on the RACGP website.

If you have any enquiries relating to this policy update, please contact Rebecca McKinnon, Policy and Reviews Coordinator on 03 8699 0511.
