RACGP educational framework
The RACGP educational framework
Last revised: 28 Jan 2021
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) educational framework is a conceptual representation of the RACGP’s approach to general practice education. It brings together the components of RACGP education, represents their interrelationships, and covers the learning continuum of the Australian general practitioner (GP). The framework is intended to guide RACGP educational development. It will also provide an orientation for learners and educators engaged with our education.
The RACGP educational guiding principles are core to the framework. This document introduces these principles and outlines their derivation from internal and external RACGP educational imperatives. The principles inform our educational structures and programs. Key educational structures are the RACGP Profile of the general practitioner, the Curriculum for Australian General Practice and the RACGP education policies and standards. We have called these three structures the ‘guiding instruments’. This document describes the place of these guiding instruments in our educational framework. Further detail on the function of these instruments and recommendations for their future development are provided in the appendices. Plans for implementing, evaluating and revising the RACGP educational framework are also provided in this document.
Developing the RACGP educational framework has involved consultation with multiple stakeholders, internal and external to the RACGP. This is a living document that will be reviewed with further consultation as educational imperatives and environments change. It will also have a regular cycle of evaluation and revision.
