The ACRRM Mentor Match Program provides access to more than 5,000 members dedicated to rural and remote medicine across Australia, and beyond.

Free for all ACRRM members, the program provides the opportunity for more senior members of the College to inspire and nurture junior colleagues toward becoming exemplary Rural Generalists in their communities. 

The program objectives include:

  • Matching mentors to mentees via a searchable database on Connect@ACRRM, following personal criteria preferences 
  • Providing a flexible structure to assist with the development of mentor/mentee relationship
  • Ensuring adequate support and guidance materials are available from ACRRM
  • Support junior members of the College to become the next generation of skilled and knowledgeable Rural Generalists who can confidently practise medicine in rural and remote communities.

Please note: The mentor’s role is to provide pastoral rather than academic support, with mentees having the opportunity to regularly discuss their professional career plans with an experienced member of the College. Download the Mentor Match handbook to learn more.
