Rural Surgical Education: The Australian Approach
Recruitin and maintaining a 'critical mass' of the medical workforce within rural centers is difficult challenge for the Australian society. A large number of universities now offer medical education with rural attachments or complete courses within rural medical schools. Recent evidence supports the notion that a significant number of students with rural attachments will continue their medical career in rural areas. The Australasian College of Surgeons offers the option to enroll into the Rural Surgical Training Program when applying for general surgical training.
