About Rural Practice Pathway

What is the Rural Practice Pathway (RPP)?

The RPP is a working group to facilitate the career development of doctors wishing to train and work in rural areas in country WA. To achieve this WA Country Health Service (WACHS) partners with WA General Practice Education and Training (WAGPET), Rural Clinical School of WA (RCSWA), Rural Health West (RHW), Postgraduate Medical Council of WA (PMCWA), Australian Medical Association Doctors in Training (AMA DIT) and Junior Medical Officer (JMO) Forum.

Initiatives of the RPP include;

  • working to expand intern and resident medical officer positions accredited by the Postgraduate Medical Council of Western Australia, and registrar training positions  in rural Western Australia
  • a variety of hospital, community and general practice placements in a number of rural towns across Western Australia
  • tailored career advice available to students and doctors at all levels to suit individual professional and personal development
  • assistance for doctors to continue working in rural areas after they have completed their prevocational training
