The National Academic Fellowship and Awards Ceremony provides the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) with an opportunity to formally recognise the achievement of its members and to meet with delegates of Australian and international medical colleges.
A number of honorary awards are presented at the National Academic Ceremony, including the Rose-Hunt Award which is the highest accolade granted by the RACGP. New Fellows are also presented with their diplomas in a ceremony for friends and families to enjoy. The awards of General Practitioner of the Year, General Practice of the Year, General Practice Supervisor of the Year and General Practice Registrar of the Year, additionally form part of the accolades presented at the ceremony.
The National Academic Ceremony is an invitation only event, open to newly ratified Fellows of RACGP Australia-wide who obtained Fellowship between 14 September 2017 – 29 August 2018. Registrations for the academic session will open in July to all eligible New Fellows.
Interstate New Fellows
Interstate New Fellows are also welcome to attend this event, providing they have been ratified Fellowship between 14 September 2017 – 29 August 2018. New Fellows can also choose to attend their respective state faculty Fellowship and awards ceremonies.
