Why is it important to receive recognition of Rural Generalist Medicine?

Rural Generalist Medicine is recognised as a protected title and specialised field within the specialty of general practice. The intention is to support the development and enhance the appeal of a specific training pathway for this career; thereby developing a workforce that can provide extended services for the healthcare needs of rural and remote communities.

Rural Generalist Medicine is a well-established model of care, practised by many general practitioners in rural and remote areas across Australia.

These doctors are broadly skilled to enable them to deliver services such as obstetrics, mental health, palliative care, and emergency care.
