RACP Special Interest Groups
What is a Special Interest Group (SIG)?
A Special Interest Group (SIG) is a group of Fellows and trainees interested in a particular clinical area. SIGs provide an opportunity for Fellows and trainees to connect with other health professionals in their area of interest and build on clinical skills and knowledge to improve professional performance.
What SIGs do the RACP recognise?
There are a number of Special Interest Groups recognised by the RACP in the areas of Rehabilitation Medicine and Community Child Health. For more information on each SIG, see:
What does a SIG do?
