Careers at the RACGP

RACGP: Healthy Profession. Healthy Australia.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) supports the backbone of Australia’s health system – our GPs. We set the standards for education and practice, deliver training and advocate for a better health system for all.

About our work

We support GPs of today and tomorrow continue their professional development from medical students and GPs in training to experienced GPs. We develop resources and guidelines so GPs can provide their patients with world-class healthcare, and we help with the unique issues that affect their practices. We’re a point of connection for GPs serving communities in every corner of the country. 

Australia’s GPs see more than two million patients each week, and support Australians through every stage of life. The scope of general practice is unmatched among medical professionals, so the RACGP supports members to be involved in all areas of care, from aged care and mental health, to preventive care and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. Patient-centred care is at the heart of every Australian general practice, and at the heart of everything we do. 

The RACGP represents more than 45,000 members working in or towards a career in general practice. We employ over 500 people across Australia. A further 1800 GPs work with us in consulting roles. We have offices in every state and territory with our National Office located in East Melbourne, and other offices located in every capital city. 

How we’re transforming

The RACGP is going through a large transformation to deliver profession led GP training from February 2023. The training program will transfer over from nine regional training organisations and see the college grow from 500 employees to around 1300. 

This is a fundamental change to the delivery of GP training in Australia, with the opportunity to improve the quality, safety, and accessibility of GP services for all Australians. We’ll build new capabilities as well as transfer capabilities from the existing Regional Training Organisations that currently provide Australian General Practice Training services. Our growing team is in the process of defining, planning, and implementing this business transformation program. 

It’s an exciting time to join the college! If you’re looking to make that next step in your career, take a look at our careers page and apply with us today.

We pride ourselves on progressive leadership – forward thinking and proactive leaders who lead by example, empowering staff to create and drive innovation. 

We consistently strive for quality and excellence in service delivery and advancement in the field. We’re committed to the ethos of acting with integrity, and transparency in serving the best interest of all stakeholders. 

We uphold professionalism with a dedicated workforce who respect and collaborate with others and are fully accountable for their actions.

Work with purpose

 Work for an organisation dedicated to improving the health of Australian communities.

The RACGP Enterprise Agreement 2022 (“EA”) currently covers employees that are employed by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in a position that falls within the EA classification structure. The EA does not currently apply to any employees of RACGP Training Services. 

If in doubt, new and current employees should refer to their written contract of employment to confirm whether the current EA applies to their employment. 

The RACGP intends to apply to the Fair Work Commission for the new Enterprise Agreement to expand in coverage to cover employees across both entities, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and RACGP Training Services. We will update this page and advice all employees if and when this application is successful.
