Towards Rural and Outback Health Professionals In Queensland


Our goal: for you to experience regional, rural or remote Australia, as you would in your discipline, for a…

week-end – join us on one of our trips
week – head to a nationwide conference
month – do and see amazing things on elective or on placement
year – at a regional placement for hands-on experience
lifetime – rewarding work and a lifestyle to match

Put simply, RURAL HEALTH IS AWESOME.  Here’s why:

As students…

1.      You’ll have a lot of fun, within TROHPIQ and within the communities

2.      Better teacher:student ratio means you’ll see more and do more than your urban colleagues

3.      Regional, rural and remote communities are many and varied, but always welcoming

As health professionals…

1.      Treat people you know and would care for even if you weren’t their treating health professional

2.      As a Rural Generalist enjoy the challenge of doing one or more of GP, emergency medicine, obstetrics and more.  Plus get paid as a specialist (because you’re considered one)!

3.      As a nurse or member of an allied health team enjoy more operational independence and a greater scope of practice with the learning opportunities that that entails

4.      The chance to work with Indigenous Australians to really make a difference and help to Close the Gap

5.      Take a leadership role, both professionally and in the community
