Faculty of Remote, Rural and Humanitarian Healthcare
The Faculty of Remote and Rural Healthcare was formally launched in November 2018 by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, incorporating Humanitarian in its structure in August 2020.
The faculty was established in response to the need identified within both industry and the public health arena to define, review and set standards of competence for organisations as well as medical and non-medical personnel delivering healthcare in remote and rural environments.
Our primary objective is to “improve the health outcomes of individuals living and working in remote, rural, austere and life threatening areas of the world”.
Our vision is to establish, promote and develop a diverse global community of healthcare professionals operating across public, private and third sectors within a number of diverse industries. This will be developed through our Capabilities Framework which you can find out more about here.
Join us in developing leadership, innovation, standard setting in education and training in the fast developing field of remote, rural and humanitarian healthcare.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Faculty of Remote, Rural and Humanitarian Healthcare:
