About The Faculty of Remote, Rural & Humanitarian Healthcare

The pre-existing Faculty of Remote and Rural Healthcare was formally launched in November 2018 by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, incorporating Humanitarian in to its structure in August 2020 to create the now flourishing  Faculty of Remote, Rural and Humanitarian Healthcare.

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. 

The faculty exists with a primary objective to “improve the health outcomes of individuals living and working in remote, rural, austere and life-threatening areas of the world”. It aims 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.
