Parallel Rural Community Curriculum
The opportunity to spend your whole Year 3 based in a rural community exists through the PRCC program in the Riverland, Barossa Valley, Greater Green Triangle or Hills / Mallee / Fleurieu.

Rural General Practice Attachments
All Flinders Medical Centre based students undertake a two-week rural attachment as part of their General Practice term.
Under the supervision of a GP, you will be immersed in rural general practice to learn how people work in the context of smaller and close-knit communities.
Supervising doctors will provide you with patient exposure and allow participation in supervised procedural work. The consulting and treatment rooms of rural doctor surgeries will provide a vital opportunity for you to observe a wide variety of medical conditions.
Rural and remote Australian communities have long suffered from an inadequate supply of general practitioners. It is important that you have the opportunity to meet a broad range of skilled doctors who have actively chosen a career in rural medicine.
Flinders RHSA may provide you with shared accommodation for these attachments - see the Rural Placements Coordinator for more information.
