Our Research Committee supports and guides the research interests of the College and its membership. The Research Committee contains a diverse group of 12 researchers, each with considerable experience in rural and remote general practice. The Committee members work collaboratively to foster innovative research that will expand the evidence-based knowledge of contemporary rural medicine.
The Research Committee is responsible for assessing requests made to the College to invite our members to participate in research. Each request is considered against a defined set of criteria. View the criteria guidelines.
