As world leaders in rural and remote practice our College has a key role in the growing global movement to advance understanding, recognition and provision of medical best practice for the world’s rural and remote communities.

International recognition for the College, its Fellowship and Rural Generalism continues to grow across the professions, jurisdictions and academia.

Our Fellows increasingly are taking up diverse work experiences across the globe; from urban general practice clinics and hospitals to more off the beaten track settings such as international crisis centres and remote health services in developing countries.

The College has established an International Working Group to provide strategic focus and to drive our efforts to build international recognition, cooperation and consensus on Rural Generalist Medicine and how its practitioners can best serve the needs of their communities.
