Interns & Junior Medical Officers

RDWA supports prevocational doctors who are interested in a rural health career. This includes interns and Resident Medical Officers who have not entered a training program.

Information on internship and PGY2+ positions can be found through the South Australian Medical Education and Training (SA MET) Unit with applications for positions coordinated through SA Health.

The Road to Rural Intern program is funded by the RDWA and provides the Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) interns with an option to undertake a ten week term in rural general practice at either Jamestown, Kadina/Wallaroo or Port Lincoln.

The Country Health SA Local Health Network (CHSALHN) also offers rural exposure in your intern year through the Mount Gambier and Districts Health Service. A number of rural based PGY2+ positions are also available through the CHSALHN.

RDWA’s Junior Medical Officers program provides exposure to rural general practice along with career information. For more information about support for Junior Medical Officers, please contact RDWA.
