“This experience has left an indelible mark on my professional journey, shaping my commitment to patient-centred and community-driven rural healthcare practices. 

"Witnessing and participating in various medical procedures, from minor interventions like sutures to major surgeries such as C-sections and laparoscopic cholecystectomies, provided me with invaluable insights into rural healthcare. Engagement in critical activities like ventilating and bagging patients, as well as conducting venipunctures, significantly broadened my clinical skills.  

"As a result of this experience, I would seriously consider moving and practicing in the Bega community. I will be singing my praises of this beautiful place and will no doubt be back again!” 

Dominic Russell | Bega 


“As someone interested in rural and remote healthcare but lacking experience, this placement has taught me a lot about the difficulties facing healthcare delivery as well as the many wonderful opportunities for learning and genuine connection that exist in a community such as Bourke. 

"The clinic days afforded some valuable clinical exposure, and the days spent out in community showed me the importance of relationship-building and consistency in any attempt to improve health engagement and outcomes.” 

Jareth Head | Bourke
