Do you want to help shape the future of regional medicine? Become a mentor in the John Flynn Placement Program (JFPP) and mentor the next generation of rural doctors.
Share with them the professional and lifestyle benefits that go with rural clinical practice. You will play an integral part in promoting a future rural career to medical students.
The John Flynn Placement Program is designed to attract the future medical workforce to a rural career. Each year 300 rural placements are available to medical students to experience the one of a kind rural clinical practice and rural lifestyle throughout Australia. The JFPP has been providing medical students with a rural immersion experience for over 20 years.
As a JFPP Mentor, you will be matched with a medical student from one of the participating universities across Australia. Your JFPP Scholar will undertake a rural placement with you for a total of eight weeks over the three or four years of their tertiary studies.
The JFPP is your chance to pass on your skills, life lessons and knowledge to medical students who are keen to learn and are interested in rural practice. Participating JFPP Mentors can earn RACGP QI&CPD points and ACRRM PDP points and will receive an honorarium per placement week. But the benefits go far beyond that!
We need qualified medical practitioners, currently registered with the National and relevant State Medical Boards, working in RA2 to RA5 locations at a general practice, hospital, Aboriginal Medical Service or other medical facility providing primary health care.

The John Flynn Placement Program is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health administered by RWAV in Victoria.
