The RACGP Foundation grants program has funded millions in general practice research, with the majority of research projects going on to be published in high impact peer review journals.

These projects have contributed to important research findings for general practice, opportunities for career researchers and improved evidence-based clinical practice.

Recipients of the RACGP Foundation also show high success rates in securing further research funding, with the return on investment ($6.60) significantly higher than many other medical research fields.
