CRP-web-thumbnailThe Community Residency Program – try something different.

Dr Emma completed a 10 week rotation on the Community Residency Program based in the Pilbara. The program is a great opportunity to find out what a career in rural practice involves and gain experience working in a regional community. For further information about the program, contact the Rural Practice Pathway Program Coordinator.

"One of its greatest benefits is giving you the variety in clinical experience in a setting where you have the opportunity to try out new skills...the program has definitely made me a much more competent and more confident independent practitioner.”
Dr Emma, Resident Medical Officer
