Joint Rural Health Club Weekend


The 11th Joint Rural Health Club Weekend (JRHCW) will be held in Warwick from 2 October – 4 October 2015. The JRHCW is an annual event which offers the unique opportunity for Queensland Rural Health Club members to join together to participate in a weekend of activities to showcase rural health. The overall objective of the event is to provide an opportunity for health students to gain exposure to the academic and social aspects of health in a rural setting. Attendees will also meet current rural health professionals, learn skills in a rural setting, gain exposure to a variety of disciplines and participate in activities promoting the rural lifestyle.

For more information, see Health Workforce Queensland’s Facebook Event.
