Doctor What? Doctor Where? podcast - RACGP or ACRRM: Which GP College is Right For You?
The twenty first episode of the Doctor What? Doctor Where? Stories of Rural Medicine podcast - RACGP or ACRRM: Which GP College is Right For You?- is now available.
If you're thinking about a GP pathway you'll already know there's two colleges - the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine.
