Joint Rural Health Club weekend

Building a pipeline of competent, locally trained, work-ready doctors is a critical component in providing quality medical care in rural and remote Queensland locations.

A core focus for health Workforce Queensland is providing the future health workforce with rich opportunities to experience rural practice and ultimately pursue a rural or remote health career.

The annual Joint Rural Health Club weekend is one such activity, with consistently high rates of attendees indicating their decision to pursue a remote or rural career was strengthened through this event.

In 2016, 44 students from the four Queensland Rural Health Clubs visited Cooktown in far north Queensland to experience life and working in rural Queensland.

The next Joint Rural Health Club weekend is scheduled for October 2017. The location is yet to be confirmed. For more information contact education@healthworkforce.com.au
