Junior doctors who work rurally and regionally are generally able to access a variety of hands on skills much sooner than their city counterparts. Working rurally and regionally supports family life and the ability to participate in diverse recreational activities. The Goulburn Valley boasts a number of attractive features whilst still being in close proximity to Melbourne.
The Regional Victoria Health Workforce Mentoring Program is a collaboration of the Goulburn Valley Regional Training Hub, Murray City Country Coast, multiple health services in rural Victoria, multiple Victorian Rural Generalist Training Programs, Going Rural Health and other partners. The program aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of individual mentoring activities by creating a structure and platform for coordination and collaboration. Most importantly having these different mentoring activities coordinated in one place provides more continuity for mentoring relationships through all the different stages of training and professional development.
Types of mentoring available include:
With the options available you can use the mentoring experience to progress your career planning and identify goals; learn from the professional experiences of others; or establish enjoyable non-work related connections within the local community.
