What support exists for doctors, including GPs?

There are a number of organisations and online communities that support healthcare professionals, including GPs. These include:

  • Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM): ACRRM is similar in scope to the RACGP, with a strong focus on support for established GPs working in rural and remote areas. It also provides support for medical students and doctors considering a move to a rural practice.
  • Australian Indigenous Doctors' Association (AIDA): AIDA is a not-for-profit association dedicated to providing support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people working in or considering a career in medicine.
  • Rural Doctors' Association of Queensland (RDAQ): RDAQ is one of seven state members of the Rural Doctors' Association of Australia (RDAA). It is dedicated to working with the government to implement solutions to the rural workforce shortage. It also provides support for secondary school students considering a career in medicine, medical students and practicing GPs.
