Regional Training Hubs

Funded by the Australian Government, WA Regional Training Hubs have been developed as a component of the Department of Health's Integrated Rural Training Pipeline for Medicine. The initiative aims to produce a future medical workforce that has been locally trained within Australia to service rural, remote, and regional communities by expanding post-graduate training opportunities within the regions.

Embedded in the medical community for two decades, the Rural Clinical School of WA understands the complexities of shaping your career as a rural doctor. Our focus at WA Regional Training Hubs is to support medical students and junior doctors in creating their career pathway from first year medical student with rural intentions to Fellowed rural practitioner.

In collaboration with our stakeholders, WA Regional Training Hubs strive to develop new prevocational and vocational rural training pathways, contributing to the creation of a sustainable medical workforce that supports the health requirements of our local communities.
