Outreach and telehealth
Placements in rural areas can include visits to rural and remote communities to provide services.
If the organisation you are on placement with conducts outreach activities, we encourage you to participate where possible.
These experiences provide insight into the health of those in more remote parts of Australia and exposure to different health needs and practice.
We offer support to students undertaking outreach as part of their clinical placement as part of our Outreach Visit Support Scheme.
In recognition of the valuable role of telehealth in providing health services to rural and remote communities, we also offer a suite of telehealth initiatives and training. These resources will help you prepare for and use telehealth in practice.
