The rural pathway is a preferred choice for registrars who wish to train and work in rural and remote areas. Both the RACGP and the ACRRM offer rural pathway training.

Renmark in South Australia’s Riverland offers Registrars a true rural experience with the support of the wider GPEx community, including the Training Supervisors in practice, their  Medical Educator, the Practice team plus GP Registrar peers and the Riverland community.

Registrars-in-training on the rural pathway are required to undertake their training in at least two practices across MMM 2-7 locations, which include regional centres and remote areas. Financial incentives are available to those registrars taking up training placements in rural and remote areas.

Overseas-trained doctors and foreign graduates of accredited medical schools may also be required to train on the rural pathway. Please refer to the eligibility guidelines on your preferred college website.
