AMA Submission on the More Doctors for Rural Australia Program

19 Jul 2019

The AMA submission on the More Doctors for Rural Australia Porgram (MDRAP) provides in principle support for the program while highlighting several key areas of concern. Overall, the AMA welcomes the move to support more doctors to join a pathway to Fellowship while providing an opportunity for rural immersion. The submission warns against using the program to move doctors out of communities they are working in, and calls for additional supports, including financial, for supervisors of participants of the program.
