UNSW Medicine's Rural Clinical School brings world-class medical education to rural Australia. The school has campuses across New South Wales including Albury, Coffs Harbour, Griffith, Port Macquarie, Sydney and Wagga Wagga. Since our launch in 2000 we have had great success training the next generation of rural and Indigenous doctors.

Our school is fully committed to leading the rural education of medical students in Australia.
