Implementation of rural generalist programme

Friday 21 December is a red-letter day for the Rural Generalist (RG) movement as the Regional Services Minister released the comprehensive blueprint for implementation of a National Rural Generalist Pathway.


Some of the key elements of the proposal are:

  • A definition of RG Medicine consistent with the Cairns Consensus

  • Professional recognition to be aligned to training consistent with the FACRRM model

  • Nationally supported, dedicated RG training from prevocational years through to Fellowship

  • Protected title for RGs within the specialty of General Practice and consistent with the agreed definition

  • Options for supporting and remunerating RG practitioners


I wonder if someone in Government is listening in NZ?
