Doctor TrainingThe Australian Government’s Rural Junior Doctor Training Innovation Fund (RJDTIF) is available to foster the development of rural primary care rotations for rurally based first year interns, building on existing state and territory rural junior doctor networks.

$18.6 million is available to support medical practitioners to provide rural primary care placements for interns under the second round of the RJDTIF.

This second round of funding aims to fund at least 36 FTE positions (around 160 rotations) into primary care settings to meet the target of 60 FTE positions for the program as a whole.

Funds from the program can be used towards intern salary; clinical supervision and support costs during the primary care rotation; administration and education support; reasonable travel and accommodation plus more. 

Applications close 14 December 2017.
