Specialist General Practice

The qualification of Fellowship in either the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine, recognises that a medical practitioner has specialised in the area of Primary Care and Family Medicine. Acknowledging the central role of the General Practitioner in the care of communities, the Australian Government and Australian Medical Council have deemed that General Practice is an academic discipline and specialty in its own right. Hence as with every other medical or surgical specialty, all current medical graduates who choose Primary Care and Family Medicine must complete formal post-graduate training to become recognised as specialist General Practitioners.  Overseas, General Practitioners are also known as Family Physicians.
