What does the College Council do?

The Board established the College Council in 2015 to act as its peak advisory body on strategic and cross-College issues.

The new College Council is a forum for key debates around education, medical practice and advocacy to be more accessible to all College members.

As a senior advisory body, the Council makes recommendations to the Board. And all decision making on the Council for recommendation to the Board will be by consensus.

​The Council comprises a representative from each of the 26 identified Education Pathways (including Chapters) within the College

  • a Fellow appointed by each RACP Division
  • a Fellow appointed by each RACP Faculty
  • a Fellow appointed by each of the seven Australian Regional Committees
  • a Fellow appointed by the New Zealand Committee; and
  • two Trainees appointed by the College Trainees’ Committee
