Dr Chantal McGrath, Registrar, Bourke, NSW
I started up in Bourke, just as a locum at the time, and decided I wanted to go permanently. It's one of the better options that you can do and you are surroounded by people who know what you are dealing with.
Dr Fiona Watson, Registrar, Childers, QLD
I have a background in women's and children's health. What I was looking for was a training provider than allowed me to stay in my community at all times ... the beauty of RVTS is that all the training is provided online - it comes to you. It's family-friendly ... why wouldn't I chose RVTS?
Doctors Ian Murphy and Erin Hawkey, Registrars. Swan Hill, Victoria
We have a young family and we are both doing training - the flexibility that the RVTS program offered us is the most appealing part of it. It has been excellent that we have been able to stay in the same place while we study.
Dr Rif Qamar RVTS Registrar and GP Specialist in Peak Hill
RVTS helped me in a lot of different ways, especially in the preparation of the specialist exams. RVTS is a wonderful organisation which is not only helping doctors but organises workshops and supports people in all they do. I feel like it is big family.
Dr Ashraf Labib RVTS Supervisor and GP Specialist in Central NSW
I think this is the best program in Australia – it supports rural doctors from a distance and gives them confidence and satisfaction. I thank RVTS for supporting me. I know the town appreciates me because I have stayed during and after training. RVTS is very supportive and so I fully recommend this program.
