RACGP Education Research

Welcome to the RACGP Education Research portal for Education Research Grants and Academic Post applications

The mission of the Royal Australian College for General Practitioners is to improve the health and wellbeing of all people in Australia by supporting GPs, general practice registrars and medical students.

This portal provides access to online applications for the following programs:

·        Education Research Grants - ERGs aim to continue to build research capability in medical education and training with a specific focus on education improvement. The overarching objective is to develop evidence-based education initiatives that increase training capacity and improve educational outcomes. ERGs are awarded via a competitive process to Regional Training Organisations (RTOs), who partner with academic institutions to undertake and complete a research project.  


·        Academic Posts - the everyday practice of GPs is based on evidence. GPs and registrars need to be able to filter, critically appraise, interpret and apply the information available to them. The Australian General Practice Training program (AGPT) seeks to ensure registrars have the opportunity to build their skills in the areas of research and critical thinking through 12-month academic post training terms.
