Rural generalist program providers
The Rural Generalist concept, as a career prospect for doctors trained in the specialty of general practice is now well established throughout Australia and is being formalised in role descriptions and industrial awards.
Preparing for a career working as a Rural Generalist requires a distinct training experience. This ensures you attain the distinct broad scope and advanced skills to enable you to practice in a variety of work settings including in general practice clinics and hospitals as required to meet rural and remote community needs. The ACRRM Fellowship defines this skill set.
There are a range of training pathways to ACRRM Fellowship.
Most states and jurisdictions have also established Rural Generalist training programs to provide supported and facilitated frameworks for this training. Arrangements for these programs vary considerably across jurisdictions, further details on these can be found at the websites below.
