International strategy

The RACP International Strategy facilitates enhanced delivery of postgraduate medical training in the South West Pacific and Timor Leste.

In consultation with local communities and institutions, the RACP's work is focused on building teaching and learning capacity and capability in-country.

Questions that guide RACP international engagement are:

  • Have we been asked for assistance and are we wanted?
  • Is there an identified need that supports and builds capacity?
  • Is the engagement robust and sustainable?
  • Will it displace an existing, functioning activity?
  • Does it utilise the RACPs core capability in postgraduate training?

RACP focuses its international work on:

  • supporting Fellows to deliver in-country training that builds the learning and teaching capacity of postgraduate medical educators
  • delivering responsive support in consultation with local partners and leaders in individual countries
  • finding regional solutions to healthcare and education challenges
  • aligning resources and institutions, as well as individuals
  • adding value to pre-existing, effective international support programs by partnering with stakeholders delivering those programs
  • collaborating with other medical colleges, institutions, funders and governments by sharing information, experience and expertise
