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.
