The Regional Training Hubs exist to improve the coordination of the stages of medical training, so that medical students and medical trainees who want to practise rurally or regionally, can complete as much of their training as possible in rural or regional Queensland.

Our current initiatives align to:

  • Implementing strategies to identify workforce need
  • Developing new medical training capacity and better connecting existing capacity to ensure this is targeted towards meeting regional need
  • Candidate care opportunities for medical students and junior doctors interested in rural practice
  • Supporting current supervisors of clinical training; assisting health services in obtaining accreditation for new training posts and supporting local medical practitioners to become clinical supervisors
  • Promotion of regional training pathways which maximise time trainees spend regionally
  • Advocacy and leadership to promote regional training opportunities.

 

Educational Zoom Series

Our Educational Zoom Series connects rural and regional Queensland medical students, junior doctors, rural registrars, rural generalists and specialists, nursing and allied health professionals in one hour interactive Zoom video conferences. 

The series aims to provide enriched learning experiences in the rural and remote context, and delivers case-based scenarios, panel discussions and encourages audience participation. 

Meetings are topic-based and provide opportunities to share industry trends with medical subject-matter experts, discuss common issues and be informed of emerging medical developments.
