ACRRM’s General Practice Training Program is a 4-year program that results in the Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM).


Driving 3000 kilometres across Australia to an island on fire immediately before a global pandemic formed Dr Kyle Fairclough’s introduction to rural General Practice. Read Kyle’s journey here.

The ACRRM General Practice Training Program is a Government-funded Fellowship training program in the specialty of general practice. The ACRRM curriculum is specifically developed for rural and remote medicine by rural and remote doctors. In 2013, it was endorsed at the World Summit of Rural Generalist Medicine as a key resource for rural generalist training.

Training towards a Fellowship of ACRRM provides registrars with flexibility to work across a range of health settings and locations, as well as develop specialist skills in a range of disciplines such as anaesthetics, mental health, emergency medicine, paediatrics and surgery to name a few. A Fellowship of ACRRM qualifies a doctor to work as a General Practitioner anywhere in Australia including taking on the specialist role of Rural Generalist.

GPEx delivers and supports ACRRM’s education and training program to registrars on the Australian General Practice Training program.
