About the Program
The Workforce Incentive Program (WIP) improves access to quality medical, nursing and allied health services in regional, rural and remote areas. Its financial incentives encourage doctors to work in these areas and support medical practices to employ nurses and eligible allied health professionals.
The WIP consists of 3 different incentive streams:
- the Practice Stream, which pays incentives to practices to support multidisciplinary team-based care by engaging a range of health professionals
- the Doctor Stream, which pays incentives directly to doctors providing primary care in Modified Monash (MM) 3-7 locations
- the Rural Advanced Skills Stream which will pay doctors directly to provide both primary care and emergency and/or advanced skills in MM3-7 locations.
