Supporting health professionals in the workplace and other areas of their life can be the difference between them staying or going.
RWAV works to ensure the health workforce have access to comprehensive occupational support.
Outreach programs significantly improves the access to a range of health services in rural areas.
RWAV supports the health professionals delivering these services.
As part of the 2015-18 strategic plan RWAV is focusing on supporting the development of rural health careers in Victoria.
Rural and regional secondary school students are exposed to careers in health. We encourage careers in medicine, nursing, midwifery and allied health, the program recognises that recruitment and retention of a rural health workforce is crucial in supporting the significant health needs of rural communities in Victoria.
Raising student aspiration with early exposure to careers in health, clear pathways into tertiary studies, the provision of rich rural experiences during the undergraduate and postgraduate years and health education grants form the basis of activity for RWAV’s Future Workforce strategy.
The Future Workforce Program is committed to collaborating with and supporting stakeholders across education and health in rural and regional Victoria.
This is a key initiative of the Future Workforce strategy which aims to raise awareness of the range of opportunities available in rural healthcare. Ambassadors commit to promoting the benefits and variety of career opportunities in rural healthcare. Rural Ambassadors will participate in various activities such as speaking at educational activities, participating in rural experience programs and sharing their experiences in person, online and in print.
We are looking for ambassadors representing a variety of career pathways including undergraduate medical, nursing and allied health students, recent graduates, junior doctors, GP Registrars and experienced rural practitioners.
