The Specialist Pathway to Fellowship - Australia

The Specialist Pathway to Fellowship - Australia

Did you know that there are two GP Colleges in Australia? Sarah and Gary recently visited the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) in Brisbane Australia to find out more about their specialist pathway to Fellowship.

The Specialist Pathway leads to medical registration in Australia and Fellowship of ACRRM (FACRRM) entitles doctors to practice independently anywhere in Australia. FACRRM's have access to specialist rates of remuneration under Medicare which is the Australian national health insurance scheme.

Doctors who have College-recognised specialist qualifications in general practice or family medicine from countries such as the UK, Ireland, Canada, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark and South Africa may be eligible to gain Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) through the College's Specialist Pathway.

Doctors on this pathway do not have to sit examinations (AKT, KFP and OSCE) in order to be granted their Fellowship of ACRRM but complete workplace based assessments and other in practice measures. Doctors on the RACGP pathway may need to complete the examinations if deemed partially comparable to an Australian trained GP.  Eligible locations are not only in remote communities but in large regional cities including Cairns, Townsville, the Geelong region and Toowoomba.
