RURAL READY SERIES 2020 – March 3rd at 6:15 pm

The University of Queensland Rural Clinical School invites medical students to the first of four events in the Rural Ready Series for 2020, “Learning in Rural”.

The UQRCS is the rural base for the delivery of the UQ medical program.  Each year, more than 500 medical students engage with the rural experience through a range of long-term (1-2 years) placements or shorter term (4 – 16 weeks) learning opportunities.  The learner experience is characterised by real world, rich and authentic learning opportunities and extensive community involvement, and UQRCS pursues the latest innovations in medical education and training.

Hear first-hand from UQRCS staff, current UQRCS students as well as representatives from TROHPIQ about what is on offer.  All will share the benefits and opportunities of ‘going rural’, including a rich clinical exposure, their own career experiences and the reasons why they ‘went rural’.

This event is best targeted and suited to years 1 and 2 medical students, and year 3 medical students who are not currently undertaking a year 3 year-long placement at a UQ Rural Clinical School.  Light food and drinks provided at the conclusion of the evening.

Join us Tuesday 3 March, 6.15-7.45pm at E.S Meyers Lecture Theatre, Mayne Medical Building (881), Level 4, Herston.  Register online by Monday 2 March.

TROHPIQ is run by a group of passionate medical, nursing and allied health students. To get an idea of what we’re all about, check out the video below!
