Post Fellowship Education

About this committee

Education is one of the core business areas of the RACGP. The scope of the education portfolio within the RACGP encompasses all aspects of general practice education, vocational training, and continuing professional development, reflecting the journey of general practice and lifelong learning.

The RACGP Expert Committee – Post Fellowship Education is established to:

  • contribute to the identification and implementation of responses to reform initiatives through provision of information and advice on issues relating to education across the life cycle of general practice with specific emphasis upon post-fellowship education and training,
  • advise on the implementation of initiatives developed in accordance with the College’s strategic plans relating to QI and CPD and educational development opportunities,
  • establish links with relevant state, national, and international groups in order to monitor trends in relation to education access across post fellowship general practice and to incorporate suitable innovations into college programs as directed,
  • act as the key interface between RACGP of Specific Interests, providing stakeholder perspective information on educational opportunity for members, and
  • advise on professional transition activities including returning to work, broadening of skill bases and domestic and international medical opportunities, with a particular emphasis on post Fellowship education and training

Strategic directions

The RACGP aims to improve the health of all people in Australia and has five main strategic objectives. These are leadership and advocacy for the profession, fellowship in general practice, quality and standards, academic excellence and organisational excellence.
