What does rural generalist training in WA offer me?
Mentoring and career support
As a rural generalist registrar, you’ll receive ongoing support from a dedicated program training advisor and regional medical educator. They’re there for you throughout your journey to help you get the most out of every opportunity, so that you leave the program ready to take on any situation you could be faced with in a rural setting.
Diverse skills training
As part of the WARG program, we offer all our registrars incredible training opportunities in advanced skills such as anaesthetics, surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics, Aboriginal health, internal medicine, mental health, and emergency medicine.
All Australians deserve access to high-quality healthcare no matter where they live. In your career as a rural generalist you’ll be working at the pinnacle of medical practice, ensuring equal health access in regional, rural, and remote Australia.
