RACGP appoints new head
Former Australian Institute of Business (AIB) CEO Paul Wappett has been appointed as the new CEO of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).
He takes over from Matthew Miles, who resigned after a short stint in the position following the resignation of long-term CEO Zena Burgess.
Mr Wappett was previously CEO of private higher education provider AIB, which runs courses for masters of business administration (MBA). “AIB now specialises in educational content production and curation, the use and development of learning technologies and platforms as well as the use of data analytics to drive better learning outcomes,” Mr Wappett said.
“This is all highly relevant to the RACGP, particularly at a time when continuing professional development is undergoing significant change.”
He was also previously CEO of Open Universities Australia from 2012 to 2018.
