The RACP strives to be widely recognised and respected as a supporter and enabler of high-quality health and medical research. We look to sustainably fund research that has a positive impact on the health and well-being of individuals and the broader community.
The RACP assist Fellows and trainees who want to undertake research projects or have an established research career, by offering financial support in the form of grants, scholarships and fellowships through our RACP Foundation.
The RACP Health and Medical Research Strategic Plan 2019-2023 (College Research Strategy) provides a blueprint to guide the development of a research investment and policy framework through articulating clear direction and priorities across:
- Clinical Research
- Early Career Researchers
- Education Methodology Research
- Health Services and Health Systems Research
- Research in College Priority Areas
College Research Committee
The College Research Strategy is guided by the College Research Committee (CRC). The CRC's purpose is to promote and support research at the RACP and improve health outcomes.
- Consider the role of the College in the broad debate around medical research.
- Consider research priorities for Australia and New Zealand and how the College can contribute in its role.
- Explore collaborations with other research funding agencies.
- Consider strategic priorities in relation to disbursement of funding available through the RACP Foundation.
The CRC also assesses ethics applications for internal College activities that are negligible or low risk.
