General Practice Accreditation

Eacham Medical Centre is an accredited general practice: Accreditation is an integral part of safe and quality general practice in Australia. It is independent recognition that practices meet the requirements of the governing national industry Standards, set by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). Accreditation means a practice is meeting minimum safety and quality standards.

It is for general practices of all kinds who are recognised for their commitment to safety, quality and continuous improvements. By undergoing independent assessment, the award of accreditation reassures practice owners, practice managers, staff, funding bodies, consumers and patients that the practice is meeting minimum safety and quality standards, as outlined by the RACGP.

Training and Medical Education

At Eacham Medical Centre we are committed to the ongoing development of the medical workforce of North Queensland.

From time to time we have medical students attached to the practice. They may be invited to sit in on consultations. Patients are always given complete freedom to decline the presence of a student at their consultation.

We are a training centre for Generalist Medical Training (GMT), our regional General Practice Training organisation.
