Attending the RDAQ Conference is a fantastic opportunity for Medical Students to gain further insight into the political side of rural health and improve your knowledge of rural health issues. It will also give students the valuable opportunity to improve their skills, network with future colleagues and improve knowledge of emerging ideas, topical issues and new technology. CSQTC usually offers Medical Student sponsorships, which will be organised via the RDAQ and the Rural Health Clubs. For more information please talk to your relevant Rural Health Club. Applications generally open in March ear year. To find out more about the conference and the Rural Health Clubs, please visit the RDAQ Conference website - Student Initiatives page.
RACGP Career in General Practice e-Guide. The RACGP has developed an e-guide to assist medical students and junior doctors in making informed decisions about future career options. General practice: ‘connecting the dots' for students and junior doctors outlines the journey towards general practice from the time of finishing medical school until becoming a qualified general practitioner. The online guide answers questions such as what a career in general practice entails, how the training providers, colleges and other organisations fit into the puzzle. It also outlines the additional training opportunities available. To view the free guide, visit www.racgp.org.au/gpcareer
