In response to critical medical workforce shortages being experienced across Australia, the Australian Government has implemented measures aimed to provide financial support to doctors in their efforts of achieving fellowship of either the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).
If you are enrolled on the Rural Locum Relief Program or the Doctors for the Bush scheme, are working towards your fellowship and need financial assistance, contact us for a discussion about assistance that may be available to you.
Additional Assistance Scheme
The Additional Assistance Scheme (AAS) (also known as the Fellowship Support Scheme) provides case management and funding for eligible Overseas Trained Doctors (OTDs) and Australian trained doctors who are working towards Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine.
Participating doctors take part in courses and training to help them achieve Fellowship.
Health Workforce Queensland is responsible for administering the program in Queensland.
