Chapters are groups of members with like-minded interests or associations that bring them together for a common cause.
Each Chapter across the motu is led by an executive team of volunteer GPs and rural hospital doctor. The College also has Te Akoranga a Māui, our Māori representative group.
The College has four Chapters
Members of this chapter identify as Pasifika and often serve communities with large Pacific populations.
Rural General Practitioners’ Chapter
What issues are facing rural practitioners? How can we put a ‘rural lens’ over the work of the College? What initiatives could improve the quality of rural training and general practice? These are the issues the Rural GPs' Chapter is concerned with. Rural GPs can connect and collaborate to address these questions through the Chapter’s Executive Team.
The Division of Rural Hospital Medicine
If you’re in training or a Fellow of the Division of Rural Hospital Medicine you automatically belong to this Chapter, which helps improve knowledge and provide education and collegial support for this specialist field.
