About the opportunity 

The School of Rural Health in Dubbo is in an exciting time of growth and development.

The Dubbo stream will admit 24 students each year, giving preference to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander candidates, those of rural origin, and those of lower socio-economic status. The MD curriculum integrates preclinical sciences with clinical sciences, clinical skills, population health, ethics, medical law and professionalism being taught in parallel with preclinical sciences.

Year 1 comprises a foundational block that includes an introduction to infection and immunity, and eight system-based blocks:  Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Cardiovascular, Endocrinology and Nutrition, Sexual Health, Nephrology and Urology, Gastroenterology, and Neurosciences. Year 2 begins and ends with clinical immersion terms in Medicine and Surgery with a further preclinical term covering haematology, oncology and other preclinical topics. Year 3 is devoted to specialty fields (Perinatal and Women's Health, Child and Adolescent Health, Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine, and Emergency Medicine, Anaesthetics and Intensive Care) as well as a MD Research Project. Year 4 begins and ends with elective terms, sandwiching further clinical blocks in Medicine, Surgery and General Practice.

The position is located at Dubbo. Limited travel between rural and metropolitan sites may be a requirement of this position.

Dubbo, NSW is a vibrant regional centre that offers the benefits of space and a relatively laid-back lifestyle with the amenities of a major city. Home of the Wirumdhah people of the Wiradjuri Nation, Dubbo connects and services a broad catchment population of 120, 000 people in the Orana Region and has daily flights to a number of regional and metropolitan centres.
