Regional Training Hubs

Funded by the Australian Government, Regional Training Hubs (RTH) are a component of the Integrated Rural Training Pipeline for Medicine (IRTP) initiative, which aims to address medical workforce maldistribution across regional and rural Australia. 

We are privileged to deliver three Regional Training Hubs, each with a fundamental purpose to develop a sustainable medical workforce that can meet the needs of regional and rural Australia. Our Hubs are located across three great regions: Border (Albury-Wodonga), Murrumbidgee (Wagga Wagga and Griffith) and Mid North Coast of NSW (Coffs Harbour, Kempsey and Port Macquarie).

We appreciate the uniqueness of these different regions and understand that tailored approaches need to be developed and utilised in order to meet their individual needs. Through innovation and collaboration, we strive to support, and provide regional training and work opportunities, for medical students, junior doctors, doctors-in-training and Fellowed doctors. 

Our RHT’s are working hard on delivering pathways across the continuum, from medical education through to prevocational and vocational training whilst showcasing the amazing opportunities that regional and rural life have to offer. 

Whilst working towards the vision of a sustainable future workforce,

we will ensure that we deliver on the Rural Training Hubs key objectives:

  • Identify and enable medical students with rural intent to complete more of their medical training within regional and rural areas
  • Facilitate increased access to regional & rural training opportunities for students and doctors who intend to live and practice regionally or rurally
  • Develop and enhance regional training capacity through collaborations with partner organisations.
  • Develop new and strengthen existing relationships
  • Identify and prioritise activity that meets regional medical workforce needs.
