Australian Medical Association – Regional/Rural Workforce Initiatives – 2012 – position statement – April 2012

“How to use this Position Statement

The AMA has developed a Position Statement on regional/rural workforce initiatives because of the importance of improving the medical workforce supply in regional and rural Australia.

The Position Statement outlines a range of factors that influence Medical Practitioners to work in regional and rural areas and offers a range of solutions that would relieve current pressures and entice more doctors to work outside metropolitan areas. The Position Statement addresses undergraduate, post-graduate and continuing education. It covers remuneration together with a range of other influences such as hospital and general infrastructure, family support and rostering and locum services. It includes a section on International Medical Graduate (IMG) doctors.

Policy makers at all levels of government, medical educators and doctors interested in pursuing a career in regional and rural Australia can use this Position Statement.”
