UQ Regional Training Hubs has designed a Rural Context Training program to introduce the unique features of rural and regional clinical practice and life in general in rural Australia.  It aims to smooth the transition of doctors new to rural or regional practice by providing the knowledge and skills to integrate quickly and easily into the community.

Please note this program is by invitation only as it is currently being piloted with participants of the Integrated Rural Training Pipeline for Medicine Specialist Training Program (IRTP-STP) and Rural Junior Doctor Training Innovation Fund (RJDTIF) programs.

An overview of the Training Program is provided below:
