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 Country Health SA Local Health Network (CHSALHN) 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 please view the individual programs through the following links:

When it becomes time to apply for the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program, you can train in rural South Australia by applying for the rural pathway. RDWA offers support to doctors applying for the rural pathway with the Introduction to the AGPT National Assessment Process, an evening session that looks at the individual components that form the national assessment for this program.

For more information on RDWA’s support for Junior Medical Officers, contact RDWA.
