Go Rural Virtually is an online forum for health students, from all disciplines and year levels, to come together and learn about the day-to-day realities of practicing and living in rural and remote locations.
Travel alongside rural speakers drawn from public and primary health care settings, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services, community organisations, and individuals with lived experience to virtually explore, and be part of, thought-provoking discussions that cover all you need to know about rural practice and more.

Most recently we had an insightful conversation with our speakers about their lived experiences and listened to stories of dealing with substance dependence.
We’ve sourced a valuable collection of resources that relate to the topics we’ve covered. You can find them on our dedicated Student Hub page.
