What these initiatives will do

  1. Improve the quality of care given to patients in country hospitals and rural practices by addressing the maldistribution of the rural medical workforce across Australia
  2. Provide training along the pathway from student to medical professional in rural areas
  3. Provide systems that will support the internships, rotations or mentoring of the growing number of students in rural areas
  4. Provide educational support, direct clinical supervision and mentoring of all doctors in postgraduate training and clinical practice
