Doctors begin regional training

May 23, 2024 9:49 am in by

The first 21 doctors have begun their training in regional hospitals, under the NSW Government’s Rural Generalist Single Employer Pathway Program, designed to see more doctors work, live and train in
regional NSW.

The single employer model provides a coordinated pathway that makes it easier and more attractive
for junior doctors to train as rural generalists.

The program provides secure employment over the training period and ensures rural generalist
trainees are being paid the same amount as their hospital-trained counterparts.
