Cover of the RACGP Curriculum for Australian General Practice 2011


The RACGP Curriculum for Australian General Practice 2016 has undergone some major changes to complete the process of bringing it into a competency-based format. Using best practice guidelines for the development of curricula, the 2016 edition is concise and easy to use for both educators and learners. Rather than one large document, the Curriculum is now modular, making it easier to navigate, update and most importantly, map against learning programs and assessment processes.

The changes to the Curriculum evolved over time based on consistent feedback from its users. During the renewal process literally hundreds of general practitioners with special interests and expertise in education and the many areas in which they apply their skills contributed ideas, wrote material, reviewed, revised and guided the development of the Curriculum. The end product is a truly collaborative effort.

The Curriculum is a seminal document designed to influence and frame the learning life of the general practitioner in Australia. As a living document, it will inevitably undergo further changes as the health needs of Australians evolve and new discoveries open up opportunities for GPs to further develop their knowledge and skills.
