Encouraging medical education research across MCCC

We encourage supervisors, medical educators and GP trainees to incorporate latest research into clinical practice. We also encourage people to undertake research training, design, conduct and publish high-quality research.

We are committed to evidence-based education and the support of the professional development of our medical educators, GP supervisors and GP trainees by:

  • Conducting events to upskill our medical education workforce about the requirements of the Australian College of Rural & Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and/or the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP)
  • Attending and presenting at national GP training and education conferences
  • Offering a monthly on-line medical education journal club to encourage and improve research literacy, keep up-to-date with current research and inform the delivery of the training program
  • Offering academic research posts for GP trainees with RACGP and ACRRM

We expect all clinicians and medical educators to be research literate and able to utilise research findings in their practice.

Our Education Portfolio Manager – Research, Dr Duncan Howard is our ‘research champion’ and oversees development of this portfolio within the medical education team.
