The Riverland Academy of Clinical Excellence (RACE) aims to boost clinical training and employment across the Riverland Mallee Coorong region and offers exciting opportunities for medical students, interns and Trainee Medical Officers.

The medical education program offered by RACE is called The Academy Pathway, and it enables medical graduates to undertake all the required postgraduate training to achieve a Rural Generalist Fellowship based in RMCLHN.

Rural Generalism is a sub-speciality of General Practice that provides comprehensive general practice, emergency care and additional care that would ordinarily be referred to another specialist in the city, for example, obstetrics and emergency care.

Rural Generalists are recognised by a Fellowship of either the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) or the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

To gain this Fellowship, a person must complete:

  • a university medical degree (4 to 6 years)
  • employment and training as a junior doctor (2 years)
  • training as a Registrar, including successful completion of a national examinations (4 years plus)

Additional education programs, including programs for nursing, allied health and others professional groups will be added over time.
