Dr Ewen McPhee says the college is entering a new chapter and hopes it will bring health equity across Australia!

ACRRM’s new President, a rural generalist campaigner from Queensland, has promised to agitate for policies that deliver health equity for rural and remote communities.

Dr Ewen McPhee, a GP obstetrician from Emerald, defeated rival candidate Dr Mike Beckoff, from SA, to be elected leader of the rural doctor’s college.

Dr McPhee said ACRRM was entering a new chapter, particularly with the planned roll-out of a national rural generalist training program.

“It’s my hope that ACRRM will continue to agitate for the brave and intelligent decisions that can bring health equity to people in our rural and remote towns, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities,” he said.
