Bi-College accreditation

Bi-College Regional Training Provider (RTP) Accreditation is a program jointly managed and conducted by the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), the two specialist medical colleges responsible for setting and arbitrating the standards for general practice training in Australia.

All training providers are required to participate in accreditation, review, monitoring, evaluation and reporting processes, according to ACRRM and RACGP standards. RACGP and ACRRM have designed a single process that allows for concurrent accreditation of training providers by both colleges against their own College’s standards.

Bi-College accreditation of each of the training providers is jointly conducted by RACGP and ACRRM who share all aspects of the workload and responsibility. The Bi-College Accreditation Program aims to ensure that training providers are providing programs that are educationally relevant, purposeful for all stakeholders, and meet both Colleges’ specialist medical training standards.
