To acknowledge the outstanding achievements of RACP members, the College grants several medals and awards (awards). These awards provide an opportunity for the College and its
membership to recognise and celebrate the accomplishments of members as well as to promote their successes to inspire others.
These awards are usually presented annually at the College’s Convocation Ceremony immediately prior to the College’s Congress and include:
The John Sands Medal
The College Medal
The RACP Mentor of the Year Award
The RACP Trainee of the Year Award
The RACP International Medal, and
The RACP Medal for Clinical Service in Rural and Remote Areas
Successful nominees will join the ranks of many prominent award recipients including Sir Edward Ford, Professor Charles R B Blackburn AC and Professor Judith Whitworth AC.
The College also confers Honorary Fellowships upon distinguished or renowned members of the medical profession and other eminent persons who are not members of the College, to acknowledge the significant contribution they have made to the College or health and medicine.
