Rural Training Pathways



Assisting medical graduates to gain country experience.

The rural training pathways in Western Australia help retain medical graduates in country areas. Health practitioners are able to complete different stages of their medical training from student to graduate in rural areas.

By working in rural and remote Western Australia you will have the opportunity to practise varied and challenging work, develop professional skills and maintain a healthy work-life balance whilst being part of a close-knit regional community. Contact the Rural Practice Pathway Coordinator to find out how you can start a career in Western Australia.
