The Riverland Academy of Clinical Excellence training program was modelled around listening to the challenges of medical students and junior doctors around the country who want a secure single-employer contract for the duration of their training, who want to be able to choose to live in one place if they wish, and who want flexibility for part-time employment. All of this in a supportive community and along with being recognised as a valued part of the medical team where there is an opportunity to do meaningful work while they are learning.
The rotations of the Riverland Academy of Clinical Excellence are designed to provide a range of clinical experiences that are high quality and truly representational of rural medicine. This program can be undertaken as part of rural generalist training through AGPT with ACRRM, RACGP, Independent Pathway or other training pathways will also be considered. Preference is given to applicants committed to a career in rural or regional practice across primary care, hospital-based care or both.
