High School Students

With the current COVID-19 situation we are cancelling events including medSPACE Residential Workshop until further notice. If you have questions, or would like any clarification, please don’t hesitate to call and we will endeavour to provide you with an accurate response.

Many of South Australia’s rural high school students will become our State’s rural health workforce of the future.

RDWA’s medSPACE program supports rural high school students who dream of studying medicine to reach their goal. 

medSPACE will provide you and your family all you need to know about starting a career in medicine and support you to prepare for the application and assessment processes.

medSPACE has two parts:

You might want to start with applying for the residential workshop, which is a three-day experience to help you understand what studying medicine will be like.  The workshop is held in the July school holidays in Adelaide, and students have valued this event as highly beneficial for more than 10 years. 

If you are currently in Year 12, then the university preparation grant will help you to manage all the steps you need to do to get ready for applying for medicine during this year.

Our team is here to help with any questions you or your family have as you think about your career as a health professional. 

Call or email our Future Workforce team anytime for chat.
