Education & Training

The RFDS has always been committed to reducing shortages of health practitioners in remote and rural Australia. To this end, the RFDS supports the training and education of medical, nursing and allied health students and provides student placements under set agreements with several universities.

Involvement of students is encouraged and the RFDS strongly supports the inclusion of rural and remote issues, Indigenous health and multi-disciplinary practice in health curricula.

The RFDS also supports universities and organisations involved in the training and education of students and other health professionals.
