Rural placements are available in most disciplines and provide a valuable opportunity to explore the intricacies of regional and remote health care provision and offer diverse experiences to those students who want to challenge themselves to the 'next level' of health care. Students get the chance to work with a gamut of skilled professionals who are adept at managing a wide range of conditions and situations resulting in a placement experience that is comprehensive and varied.
There is a suite of support services available for students participating in rural placements, including financial assistance, accommodation and educational opportunities. For further information about rural placements, visit our Going Rural Health website:
