Queensland Rural Generalist Leader Program Print E-mail


Leadership for Clinicians Training Program

In collaboration with the QRGP, RACMA is developing a customised Leadership for Clinicians Training Program contextualised to the needs of the rural medical workforce in Queensland. The inaugural Training Program will commence in March 2017. This Program aims to increase the supply of suitably qualified medical leaders who are based in remote and rural settings; have existing remote and rural health care delivery experience; and an understanding of the varying scope of practice of remote and rural health services.

The QRGP is launching the Queensland Rural Generalist Leader Program in Toowoomba on Wednesday 7 December 2016. To express your interest in attending, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Your opportunity

An opportunity is being offered for individuals in the inaugural cohort to undertake the Training Program with the assistance of a subsidy from the QRGP. QRGP welcome interest from available individuals who meet the entry requirements specified via submission of an application direct to QRGP.

The qualification/membership conferred at the completion of the Training Program is Associate Fellowship of RACMA (AFRACMA).

What are the benefits of the AFRACMA membership?

Benefits of Associate Fellowship include:
  • Letters of good standing to support credentialing processes
  • Access to informative webinars about health services issues
  • Access to the College podcasts, quizzes, templates, literature and reading lists
  • A program of learning sets for AFRACMA and Fellows. There will be a small fee for these sets and the program will include a face to face meeting for the Set members during the year
  • Participation in College-wide consultations, and committees
  • Publish in the RACMA journal The Quarterly
  • Receive regular e-newsletters from the RACMA Board and the National Office
  • Access employment/career opportunity notices
  • Receive early bird discounts to the RACMA Annual Conference

The award of AFRACMA is not a recognised specialist qualification and does not permit the holder of AFRACMA to register as a specialist in Australia or New Zealand. For those wishing to pursue FRACMA, applications for 12 months credit entry to the Fellowship Training Program will be considered following satisfactory completion of the Leadership for Clinicians Training Program.

All College fees are subject to annual review by the Board on the advice of the Finance and Audit Committee.
