Get a taste of life as a health professional in rural Queensland!

GROW Rural is a three year program, which provides medical, nursing and allied health students the annual opportunity to experience comprehensive clinical practice and the unique lifestyle of remote and rural Queensland communities. 

Thirty-five undergraduate health students will visit remote and rural Queensland communities each year for three consecutive years - forming personal and professional relationships, connecting with communities and residents and expanding their clinical knowledge and practice. 

The 2017 cohort will visit Central Queensland, experience a farm stay, see a cattle property, attend a community trivia night, as well as undertake clinical skill sessions. 

GROW Rural is a one of a kind rural immersion experience aimed at attracting the future workforce to a remote and rural career. If you're interested, apply today!
