Hills Mallee Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island

Flinders Rural Health SA has a large presence in the Hills Mallee Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island region with rural campuses in both Murray Bridge and Victor Harbor.

Third year Doctor of Medicine students undertake the 12-month Parallel Rural Community Curriculum (PRCC) program based at Mannum, Murray Bridge, Strathalbyn, Goolwa, Victor Harbor and Kingscote (Kangaroo Island).

Students are principally attached to a general practice, but also learn alongside health professionals in hospitals, community health centres, outreach agencies, Aboriginal Medical Services, and with private allied health practitioners.

Nursing, allied health and fourth-year medical students undertake shorter clinical placements at hospital, health services and prisons throughout the region.
