Together we are creating a sustainable medical workforce to meet the needs of rural and remote NSW
NSW Rural Doctors Network
The Health Workforce Scholarship Program (HWSP) provides scholarships and bursaries to help health professionals in rural and remote Australia retain and enhance their skills, capacity and scope of practice. The Program is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health, administered in New South Wales by NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN).
The Far West NSW Regional Training Hub – Space to Grow
The Far West NSW Regional Training Hub (FWNSWRTH) is an Australian Government funded organisation that is hosted by the Broken Hill University Department of Rural Health. To create a sustainable medical workforce its focus is on forming collaborations between health organisations including the Royal Flying Doctor Service, SE (RFDS-SE), Far West Local Health District (FWLHD), Primary Health Networks (PHNs) and the NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN). It also supports all stages of medical career development.
We aim to:
- Generate a sustainable medical workforce that meets the health needs of the Far West NSW region.
- Improve the coordination, continuity and capacity of rural clinical training to encourage and enable prevocational medical students to complete most of their studies and training in a rural and/remote area.
- To provide opportunities and experiences which strengthen and foster a desire in those on the medical career pathway to choose to go rural.
We value the experiences and opinions of those on the medical career pathway. We want your rural experience to be a positive one and we need your help to ensure that we provide it. We would like to hear from you. Pop into our office in the Medical Clinical Stream at the BHUDRH or via contact details below.
