​Are you a full-time health student in your first year of study and keen to expand your horizons and explore new opportunities? Read on!

We will be selecting a new intake of health students to take part in the first year of the next GROW Rural South West Queensland immersion program this year. The previous cohort graduated in Charleville in October last year and really valued the three-year program. 

GROW Rural is an end-to-end rural health workforce solution program organised by Health Workforce Queensland with the intention of connecting health students with communities, socially, culturally, and professionally, annually over a period of three years. 

We have been running these programs throughout Queensland for a number of years now and it has continually evolved and expanded to integrate workforce capability to complement and support local primary health care settings and stakeholders. 

As a workforce solution, GROW Rural now works collaboratively with each region’s practices, health services and targeted communities to grow, over the course of the program, structured pathways into identified employment opportunities for graduated GROW Rural students.

For GROW Rural students, the program offers pre-employment relationship-building, supported placements and the development of occupational and interpersonal skills required to become job ready.

For GROW Rural communities, the program offers opportunities to actively participate in being part of the workforce solution and to grow Queensland’s future health professionals.

The program is open to first year full time health students at Queensland Universities. We have information sessions coming up on 17, 18 and 23 May and applications will open on 1 June. Click the buttons below for more information or to register for one of the information sessions.
