GVRTH plays a key role in bringing together all the stakeholders involved in specialist training in the region.
GVRTH is enabling students, interns and trainees to easily access information about training in the region, working to increase the number of funded training positions in the region, building a mentoring program to support medical students, interns and junior doctors in the region linking them to social and professional support and working with all health services in our region to improve the access to teaching and learning for junior doctors based in our region.
GVRTH is supporting our health services partners to achieve their strategic objectives to improve supervision, feedback and communication skills of their senior medical staff and working with experts in the field of medical education and learning technologies to develop a training packages which will be available to our health services partners.
Are needed to address workforce distribution issues in rural Australia and accommodate the increased number of medical graduates.
We believe that ultimately the specialist training model needs to be flipped so that rural hospitals are the base for training with trainees being rotated out to metro hospitals for the last year of their advanced training. This ensures that those who want to build their career rurally get a great hands on experience and can build relationships, and also improves access to health services for rural populations.
