RVTS Training as a Recruitment Package

Dr Mubashar Sherazi, based at Mallacoota Victoria

Since 2018 RVTS has partnered with rural and remote communities of high medical workforce need to use RVTS training as part of a recruitment package.

This targeted recruitment has brought a stable workforce and enhanced continuity of care to these remote communities as well as providing career progression for the recruited doctors to GP Fellowship.

RVTS has supported the recruitment of 15 doctors to 20 remote communities across Australia, including 4 remote Aboriginal Medical Services, with high workforce need.

A list of new eligible Targeted Recruitment locations for 2022 will be available in March 2021.

Additional Salary Support funding from the Department of Health may also be available to support the recruitment and retention of doctors to Targeted Recruitment locations.

These funding arrangements are still being determined and will be published once available.
