Scholarships and Training Support

The RGPSA Scholarships and Training Support Grants provide rural junior doctors and Fellowed GPs with additional access to training that meet key skill needs for our regional communities.

Initially the the Scholarship and Training Support Grants are open for those seeking to obtain the Emergency Medicine Certificate (EMC) or Emergency Medicine Diploma (EMD) and include funding support for associated accompanying required short courses (ALS2, APLS, ETM).  These may be funded in isolation of the EMC or EMD but must be for the trainee obtaining the EMC or EMD. Other emergency short courses may also be considered in certain circumstances.

Scholarships and Training Support Grants may cover multiple activities and should be applied for before the commencement of the training activity. Please ensure time for applications to be processed prior to training commencing. Retrospective applications will not be considered.

See Scholarship Guidelines for details and eligibility criteria.

Instructions:

Please read grant guidelines carefully and complete the application form.

Applications open in June 2022 on an ongoing basis or until all funding is allocated. Each application will be assessed on a case by case basis against the assessment criteria as outlined in the grant guidelines. Approval is subject to funding availability with limited grants available.
