A FACRRM demonstrates that you can confidently and competently work in the broadest range of locations and environments, and entitles you and your patients to the maximum benefits available from Medicare’s A1 items.  

Once you're a Fellow of the College you are qualified to work:

  • independently
  • in a team (in practice, hospital, or retrieval service), or
  • as a collaborator (complementing the local region’s health service with your specialist skills in anaesthetics, surgery, or obstetrics).

Recruiters frequently identify a FACRRM as a preferred qualification – in Queensland a FACRRM is the certification of choice for 97% of rural generalists, enabling graduates to earn up to $120k more than if they held other general practitioner qualifications.
