Abstract

Aims On the threshold of a new era of consequences, it seems the evidence of climate change is not speaking to medical education and training, and vice versa. What competencies will Australia’s rural and remote general practitioners need in a climate-changing world? How should Australian rural and remote medical education and training adapt to meet the challenges of climate change? How is Australia placed relative to the world in meeting such challenges and what does this suggest about our global responsibilities? This paper aims to explore what Australia should do locally, nationally, and internationally to help ensure rural and remote general practitioners are prepared for a climate-changing world.
