The Future Workforce program works with secondary school and university students to raise awareness of rural health careers, assists with rural placements for university students, and provides grants and bursaries to facilitate access to university entrance exams and clinical placements.
Rural Health Careers
Join a workforce with a strong community connection focused on making a difference and enjoy the balanced lifestyle a rural setting offers. Healthcare is Australia’s largest employing industry. A third of the workforce is based in rural/regional areas.
John Flynn Placement
The John Flynn Placement Program provides undergraduate medical students the opportunity to experience clinical practice and lifestyle in rural and remote locations across Australia.
Rural Health Clubs
Joining a rural health student club is a great way to meet other like-minded students, build networks and learn more about the industry. There are 28 university clubs across Australia with over 9,000 members.
Bonded Medical Students
The Bonded Medical Program provides students a Commonwealth Supported Place in a medical course at an Australian university in return for a commitment to work in eligible regional, rural and remote areas for a specified period after completion of their course.
