The RACGP History Contribute to our history

Calling for contributions

The College is interested to hear from members and others who have had contact with the College and who would like to participate in this project.

Ways to contribute

Members and others who have had contact with the RACGP over the years are invited to contribute to the RACGP history. 

You can contribute by donating or writing.

Donating

We are interested to hear from you if have RACGP memorabilia, historical photographs or old medical instruments to donate to our archival and museum collections. Details of all items offered for donation are to be submitted to the Archives team for assessment and there is no guarantee that all items offered for donation will be accepted.

Please send details of items you wish to donate to:  archives@racgp.org.au

Writing

Write your own story or work with a colleague, friend or family member involved in general practice to write theirs, such as the fascinating biography of  Dr Patrick Edmonds written by Max Kamien or maybe write an obituary or tribute to a colleague you’ve worked closely with or been mentored by.  If you enjoy historical research delve into the history of a particular general practice and write an essay to share with others via the general practice histories page. For an example of a fascinating practice history checkout that of Abesway Medical Practice which has links with a well-known pair of cricketing twins.

Biographies, obituaries and history papers may be submitted for consideration by the History Screening Panel via archives@racgp.org.au
