In year four, all MD students have the opportunity to undertake at least one six week rotation.
While opportunities are always increasing, rural rotations include general medicine, surgery, anaesthetics, psychiatry emergency or obstetrics/gynaecology in rural hospitals, Aboriginal health services and general practice.
Onsite rural clinicians provide structured teaching during these rotations. Virtual teaching and learning platforms are utilized to support the program.
Leaning opportunities are provided through participation at clinical meetings, visits to relevant agencies and observation of experienced practitioners.
