The Joint Rural Health Club Weekend is held annually by Health Workforce Queensland in conjunction with the RDAQ foundation. Rural health clubs in attendance include BUSHFIRE, HOPE4HEALTH, RHINO and TROHPIQ. The conference provides an opportunity for health students to gain exposure to the academic and social aspects of practising health in a rural setting. The weekend incorporates social and academic skills sessions. It is always one of the highlights of the year for rural health students.
