Rural and Remote Health

Rural Health care is not a speciality in itself but comprises medical services provided by GPs likely having RACGP’s Fellowship in Advanced Rural General Practice (FARGP) qualification, who live in remote areas where medical facilities and specialists are sparse. GPs in rural and remote areas of Australia often practice a wide range of procedural skills to help meet some of the gaps in healthcare, and can also utilise telehealth and video consultation technology to connect remotely with specialists. GPs also provide some degree of obstetric services, internal medicine, geriatrics, palliative care, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, etc
