Wide Bay RCS trip was a massive success with 30 first and second year students touring the Hervey Bay and Bundaberg regions. Students were given tours of both hospitals, student accommodation and rural clinical school buildings to get an idea of what it might be like to go rural for 3rd or 4th year! Students enjoyed Saturday night at the Spotted Dog and brewery in Bundaberg. And most importantly, they all had lots of time to chill out and enjoy the beaches to get a vibe of what it might be like studying in 2 such beautiful places! The trip included a great stay at the beautiful Kelly’s Beach Resort. Safe to say all students had a great time and majority were keen on going rural by the end of the trip. Mission accomplished!
Many thanks to the RCS and students for hosting us on this great trip!
This year on April 1st, TROHPIQ had its annual Toowoomba Rural Clinical School Trip. Friendly staff and current students welcomed future interested students to their amazing facilities and bonded over morning tea. The current students also gave friendly tours of the hospital, student accommodation and fun things to do in Toowoomba. It was a fun relaxing day overall that convinced many to apply to the Toowoomba RCS in the future.
Our TREE scholars have completed their placements and the incredible stories are flooding back in. It is so inspiring to hear the experiences of these students and all the skills they have learnt along the way. Check out this incredible video submitted by one of the scholars – Soe San Htike (PiPi) during her TREES placement in Dalby.
