Rose-Hunt Award


Last updated 4 April 2023

About the Rose-Hunt Award

The Rose-Hunt Award is a gift from the Royal College of General Practitioners (UK) to the RACGP and is the highest accolade awarded by the RACGP.

The Royal College of General Practitioners, through its President Dr GI Watson, presented 12 silver medals to the Australian College on 5 October 1972, commemorating two of its founding members, Lord Hunt of Fawley (the first Honorary secretary) and Dr Fraser Rose.

The first Rose-Hunt Award was presented to Dr WA Conolly, a founding father of the RACGP, in October 1974. The Rose-Hunt Award is awarded to an RACGP Fellow or member who, in the opinion of Council, has rendered outstanding service in the promotion of the objects of the RACGP, either by individual patient care, organisation, education, research or any other means. Outstanding service may be over a period of 10 years or a substantial and significant contribution to general practice over a shorter period.
