Multidisciplinary Rural Training Network - University Departments of Rural Health (UDRH)
What it does11 universities across Australia have Departments of Rural Health – at least one in each State and the Northern Territory.
This program provides funding to:
- help these universities maintain rural educational infrastructure across the country
- promote research into rural and remote health issues
- give students of medicine, nursing and other health professions opportunities to practice their clinical skills in a rural setting
- support health professionals currently practicing in rural Australia by providing education and training.
What it achievesBy giving them a chance to work in rural Australia during their training, the program encourages medical, nursing and allied health students to work in rural practice when they graduate.
Supporting rural doctors and other health professionals encourages them to stay in rural practice.
