Be a rural GP
Working rurally provides you with a broad and fulfilling training experience. MCCC offers places in rural communities within the large regional cities – Warrnambool, Mildura, Ballarat, Greater Bendigo, Greater Shepparton, Albury Wodonga and a host of rural and regional communities, including coastal towns.
Living and working rurally gives you the opportunity to further develop skills in a range of special interest areas such as obstetrics, anesthetics and emergency care.
We believe the ideal training post is a rural area where you can work in a general practice treating a broad range of ages and medical needs.
You may admit into the local hospital, provide inpatient care or work after hours care in their emergency department – experiencing true life and death situations.
Being a key member of the local health service results in diverse presentations, continuity of care and career variety.
There are also the lifestyle benefits of choosing a rural or regional area. A close-knit regional or rural town may mean you have far greater:
- Work-life balance
- Family activities and lifestyle options
- Personal and professional growth
- Advanced procedural skills.
