The Outreach Program provides urban and regionally based health practitioners with the rewarding opportunity to experience working in a rural or Aboriginal community (and in some cases this has resulted in health practitioners relocating permanently to rural locations). The program also supports students and registrars to participate in health outreach clinics and gain exposure to rural and Aboriginal health.
Download the current NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) outreach vacancies list (Excel 14KB, (PDF 58KB)) for services that are funded by the Australian Government Department of Health (DoH) and administered by RDN across New South Wales (NSW) and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). RDN frequently updates the list of outreach vacancies to maintain its currency; however, this vacancy information is ultimately provided by local organisations that operate individual services and is likely to change as services develop. This list does not include any outreach vacancies that aren’t funded by RDN’s Outreach Program.
If you are a health professional who is registered to practise in Australia or otherwise formally recognised and are interested in providing health outreach services, please register your details on our Expression of Interest form. Alternatively, email RDN or call 02 8337 8100. RDN will contact you once you have expressed an interest in Outreach to discuss current vacancies.
RDN works closely with the local health organisations responsible for the local management and administration of services and any appointment decisions will be made by the local health organisation.
