Border Regional Training Hub

Your Doctors of Tomorrow

Striving for a sustainable Medical Workforce for Rural and Regional Australia.

The Border Regional Training Hub (BRTH) is located on the NSW and Victorian border and collaborates with both States to facilitate the development of rural and regional training opportunities which contribute to career pathways within a sustainable rural medical workforce.

Partner Health Organisations


We work closely with our local Health Service and other Training Institutes and Organisations to assist with the coordination of clinical training activities, supervisor support, and the accreditation of new training positions.

Living and working in rural Australia


We showcase the best of what rural and regional areas careers have to offer. There are many rewards that rural and regional areas provide for doctors and their families, not the least being a sense of local community.

Pathways and Training

The UNSW Border Regional Training Hub has developed short summaries to illustrate regional pathways. If you are interested in working rurally but outside of our region, we can help by directing you to other Regional Training Hubs to view their opportunities.

Supporting Interns, JMOs & Students

We are here to help you to:

  • Discuss your career ambitions and what you hope to achieve
  • Provide information on what is available for your chosen pathway
  • Explore ways to assist and develop a specific training pathway for you

In addition, we can:

  • Provide professional connections to learn from their experience
  • Help identify research opportunities within UNSW and Partner Health Operations
  • Provide information on what other Hubs within our region can offer you
  • Direct you to a mentoring program both within and outside the region through other support organisations

Partner Health Organisations

We work closely with our local health service Albury Wodonga Health and other regional Health organisations to:

  • Identify community need and support the accreditation process of training posts to meet this need
  • Identify medical students and junior doctors with an interest in rural and regional career pathways and provide focussed support and skill development to enable them to reach their goals.

We can:

  • Introduce you to key stakeholders within the health service who can provide direction and career information
  • Identify training opportunities being provided by external education providers that benefit all medical staff
  • Work collaboratively with specialist colleges and GP regional training organisations to support JMO/RMOs with a specific career pathway.

Planning your career

From the time of considering medicine at secondary school to the advancement of your medical career, the Hub has information for you.

We provide:

  • Support for medical students in their application for internship positions with guidance and training in CV preparation, appropriate referee identification and interview techniques
  • Information sessions delivered by medical students to secondary school students who are interested in a medical career to discuss the life of a medical student
  • Promote and identify scholarship and award opportunties to our students
  • Provide links to training and career pathways options for career progression
