ACRRM Independent Pathway

The College's own pathway is called the Independent Pathway which has been developed by rural practitioners for rural practitioners and is administered entirely by the College.

The ACRRM Independent Pathway is an accredited training pathway that results in you being awarded Fellowship of the College.  The Pathway suits experienced doctors who respond well to self-directed learning and flexibility.

After we assess your prior learning and experience through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process, you will be able to apply for the program. 

There are two opportunities each year to apply for the Independent Pathway. Training typically commences in February and/or July. Once you start on the IP pathway, you will be supported to reach your goal through both face-to-face workshops and virtual classrooms.
