R2R Intern Program

R2R Intern Program lets interns in Adelaide’s hospitals experience the speciality of rural generalism in one of SA’s rural general practices and local hospital.

This valuable experience is available to 50 interns in 2024, thanks to the support of 10 rural general practices and the three metropolitan LHNs.

Is this for me?

If you’ve wondered about rural medicine and about to finish med school, this is a great way as a junior doctor to learn more in a fully supported environment alongside experienced rural generalists and rural GPs.

Before you start you will have a thorough orientation with R2R Intern Clinical Director and your local supervisor so you are thoroughly prepared.

Throughout the placement you will have support from your supervisor and your local Practice Liaison will coordinate your placement, linking you with registrars, RGs, GPs and practice staff. They’ll also help you settle in and help you understand your local community.

In addition to the clinical benefits of a rural rotation, your accommodation, utilities and internet are provided through the GP practice.
