RACGP Expert Committee-Research

About this committee

The RACGP Expert Committee – Research (REC-R) is established to:

  • provide advice and policy direction on research related issues in general practice,
  • support the strengthening of a culture of research in general practice and assist in the development of general practice research capacity, including academic career opportunities,
  • work with other College committees to identify their research needs and facilitate their achievement,
  • work with research and training organisations to increase engagement of registrars in research and critical thinking, and
  • support the work of the RACGP Foundation.

Strategic directions

The RACGP has four strategic priorities. These are:

  • Deliver exceptional membership experiences and value
  • Advocate for quality, well-funded general practice to remain at the heart of effective Australian healthcare
  • Develop and implement a nation‑leading education framework for general practice
  • Strive for excellence in delivering world‑class services by reinforcing a strong, lean and effective RACGP that will always work for Australia’s GPs
