Should I work in a rural or remote community?

If you go rural, you'll find some unique challenges and rewards. These include the opportunity to:

  • practise a range of medicine
  • build self-sufficiency while working independently or as part of a small team
  • become an integral part of a local community
  • experience lower living costs than metropolitan areas
  • see different parts of the country
  • learn from highly skilled rural doctors

There are also financial incentives for GPs working in rural and remote areas.
