The John Flynn Placement Program is an Australian Government Department of Health initiative designed to attract the future medical workforce into remote and rural careers through lifestyle and work experience in rural locations.

The JFPP provides 300 medical students every year, an opportunity to experience clinical practice and lifestyle in remote and rural locations across Australia.

JFPP is administered by the Consortium of Rural Workforce Agencies (RWAs). As a member of the Consortium, RDWA provides support to students, local mentors, hosts and community contacts.

JFPP participants are selected from 20 universities throughout Australia.  Successful applicants spend eight weeks over three to four years in a rural or remote community with a one-to-one professional mentor, community host and contact.

Successful applicants for the 2017 round have been advised, and are currently arranging their placements with the support of the Consortium of RWAs.

RDWA provides support to the SA students during their placements throughout Australia, as well as supporting students from other states who are placed in rural South Australia.

More information is available on the JFPP website.
