The Riverland is home to Flinders University’s undergraduate nursing degree and the Doctor of Medicine Rural Stream (MDRS) program.
The campus at Renmark offers the unique opportunity to study a full three-year nursing degree while living and working in a vibrant, diverse, rural community. The program has an identical structure to the degree run in Adelaide, including access to a state-of-the-art clinical skills simulation space.
Third year Doctor of Medicine students undertake the 12-month MDRS program based in medical practices in Barmera, Berri, Loxton, Renmark and Waikerie.
Each year, more than 200 additional Flinders nursing, allied health and fourth-year medical students visit the Riverland to undertake shorter clinical placements at hospital and health services throughout the region.
