In the spotlight

Rural placements are great experience for health students. If you are looking for rural placements opportunities, the Australian Rural Health Education Network (ARHEN) in consultation with its University Departments of Rural Health (UDRH) have developed a Guide to multidisciplinary university rural placements at UDRH’s across Australia.

The guide provides information on what discipline placements are available, travel and accommodation and contact details for the individual UDRH’s for you to contact.
