Fellowship training program

Our Fellowship training program has been developed by rural doctors specifically for generalists working in a rural or remote context. Doctors like you who are isolated by distance and who need to know more, and respond to more, to support your communities. Our College training program can be completed through one of three pathways that offer you plenty of flexibility in the order of your study, your locations and timing.

And your training may be behind you quicker than you think. Our recognition of prior learning process (RPL) officially acknowledges a wider range of prior learnt skills than any other college in Australia. 

Throughout your training journey with us you will:

  • be supported by the College training and assessment team, and are free to contact us and ask questions at any time
  • be supported by regional training organisations
  • have access to a suite of face-to-face and online learning resources, and
  • benefit from our internationally recognised curriculum that's been developed specifically to answer the challenges you face as a rural and remote generalist.

We’re proud of the fact that our qualification, Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM), is recognised by the Australian Medical Council as a standard that practitioners must attain to be recognised for the specialty of general practice.
