Be a rural GP

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
  • Flexibility
  • Personal and professional growth
  • Advanced procedural skills.
