Medical Students begin rural experience in Bega Valley

Thursday 10 April 2014

Six medical students began their 2014 rural placements in the Bega Valley in February. The third year students are part of the ANU Medical School's rural stream program which aims to provide students with a whole year, positive rural experience to foster interest and commitment towards a rural medical career.

"Local general practitioners teach and mentor the students in a rural community context," said Dr Mark Oakley, Bega academic coordinator.

"This is invaluable as they get hands on medical training and they find out about health care in rural Australia."
